Interesting news emerged last week that Sotheby's will be re-auctioning Banksy's Love in the Bin in October. Famously, the work was shredded during a live auction in 2018 just after it was sold for £1,042,000. The work will now reappear with an estimate of £4m - £6m.


The 2018 gimmick caused quite the stir back in the day. Let's wait and see if the hype has been sustained over these past three years.
