Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan created a duct-taped banana work that is on display at Miami’s Art Basel. This humble banana titled The Comedian sold for $120,000 was eaten by a visitor — David Datuna. David is actually a New York-based performance artist. He posted a video on Instagram showing the moment he took the banana down from the wall and ate the pricey fruit.
Another visitor then replaced it with graffiti “Eptein didn’t kill himself’ , which security quickly covered up.
Many people started pinning bananas and other objects than fruits on their walls and jokingly said they are accepting bids to sell their art. Many started creating memes about this art.
