    Invest in Art!

    After the buyer committed to paying over a million for this Banksy work ...

    ... the work began shredding itself.

    Sounds like what happens to my investments.

    You're probably right, the pile of shredded paper will be worth a mint.

    The art market is even crazier than the classic car market. That's why there are so many fakes.

    Some art dealer told the national news he estimated that with the frame it may now bring twice what it was sold for.

    At least it was not a cross-cut shredder...

    I can think of a lot more art produced in the last sixty years that should also be shredded. We can start with most of Jackson Pollock's stuff.

    I once said I could do as well. I'll post some pictures of my work. You decide.

    Please do. I'd love to see some of your work. Although I've sold a few, I do watercolors more for enjoyment. It's a hobby I started in the early '90s after a brief stint with oils. Maybe we can start a new thread and post some of our artwork.

    Didn't we have a forum for member's art in the old BCF?

    Here are a few of my "Pollacks". All offers over $10K cheerfully accepted. Problem - they would not upload. Maybe too big.

    You should have painted miniatures.

    This sounds like a potential Member Group if someone wants to revive the feature at http://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/group.php

    The shredding event and facts presented on its background so far smell of a multi-party performance art installation.
