The 'Hello from Banksy!' Postcard Hides a Message Under Destruction

Inspired by the self-shredding piece of Banksy artwork, the 'Hello from Banksy!' postcard lets users shred artwork to read a message. Created for the Rijksmuseum in the Netherlands, the postcard looks like a miniature piece of framed art, but a pull tab at the bottom pulls the piece of art to shreds. This reveals a secret message and leaves the user with the shredded remains of a famous piece of art.

The 'Hello from Banksy!' postcard was conceptualized by Belarusian graphic designer Lesha Limonov, and is available as six pieces of iconic artwork. Much like the original Banksy piece, titled 'Girl with Balloon,' this postcard references the concept of destroying a masterpiece to reveal a message, though in this case the message is a little more literal.
