  1. I think that Banksy has the right to destroy his art as an act of publicity and for him to express himself.I think he was trying to send the message that he really doesn't believe his art is good or is worth the money. I would destroy my own art as an act of publicity because I believe that I have the right to destroy my art because it is my creation.

  2. Banksy has the right to destroy his own art because it's his. He's the creator so he's able to destroy it. I think he was trying to send the message that everything is mortal, even if it's worth a lot or very good it can still be destroyed. I don't know if I would ever destroy my art, maybe I would if the situation would call for it, because I don't think I would get much of destroying my art right now.

  3. I was shocked and stunned when Banksby had destroyed his artwork. I wondered what was going to happen to this beautiful painting. Banksby was trying to create a new artwork during the live auction, to enter into the art history. I may like to follow the footsteps of Banksby, after viewing the output of his shredded painting and demand for his work.

  4. I think that it’s ok that he destroyed his art because it was his own work.I would destroy my work if I didn’t like it or something was wrong with it but if someone else did it then I don’t think it would be ok.

  5. I think that Banksy destroying his art was unexpected. I think he was trying to send the message of destroying our art is a bad thing. During the video everyone was saying how good it was and he probably felt unhappy with the art and wanted to destroy it. The thing sold for 1.4 million. His message was even if you feel your art sucks you should never get rid of it. Personally I would almost never destroy my art because it shows your own growth in art.

  6. I think that it was unexpected. I think his message was that even though you may not like your own art, there is no reason you should destroy it because it shows your growth over time. I would not destroy one of my own pieces because it's something I created.

  7. I think that when Banksy was destroying his art he was trying to get a message across and he has every right to shred it his art because he is the creator of it. The message he was trying to send was maybe that art shouldn't be given a price tag because to some people the piece doesn't mean anything to them and it should be shredded up while others receive a very clear and meaningful message. I would destroy one of my art pieces because sometimes you can have a clear image of what you want your piece to look like but in reality it doesn't end up that way, leaving it to look more like trash then art.

  8. I think that Banksy destroying his own art was his own decision and choice. The message I get from this is that artists have the choice to destroy their art and some may choose to even though so many people like their artwork and were disappointed it was destroyed. I don't think I would destroy my own art because if I keep it I can see my growth and how I have changed over time.
