$120,000 Banana Art Eaten by Some Dude with a Verified Instagram

Art Basel in Miami hosted a ton of modern art including the now infamous $120,000 dollar banana taped to the wall. The works by Maurizio Cattelan was purchased by three art collectors, but before the exhibition was even over and before the banana started to go bad, a man by the name of David Datuna took it upon himself to eat the banana.

The dude who ate the banana was questioned by police, but we don’t really know what snooty art people will make of it. The guy who ate the banana has a verified Instagram account, so chances are it will just be considered more performance art.

Check out an instagram video of the moment the banana was eaten.

The new banana now has it’s own private security team.
