So, it’s only fitting we start there when it comes to reflecting on the past 12 months.

The challenge was designed to channel the inner rebel and art vandal in all of us, and we were amazed at just how many ways our creative community could create something meant to be destroyed. via PicsArt The Challenge was inspired by a Sotheby’s art auction that grabbed the world’s attention earlier this month. After one of Banksy’s most famous pieces of work sold for $1.4 million, the painting suddenly slipped through a frame, shredded into pieces. Banksy then revealed that he himself had booby-trapped the painting to self-destruct. The audience was stunned. View…
