Banana taped to wall which sold for $120,000 was eaten

"It's very delicious," performance artist David Datuna wrote on Instagram after eating one edition of the now famous banana art. The piece sold for $120,000 just last week - but the artwork of a banana duct-taped to a wall has now been scoffed.

Performance artist David Datuna posted videos online showing himself peeling the fruit from the wall and consuming it in front of scores of onlookers at the Art Basel Miami Beach exhibition on Saturday.

Entitled Hungry Artist, he described eating the banana as an "art performance" and said the Comedian installation, by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, was "very delicious".

It was one of three editions of the work, with two selling for around $120,000 earlier this week and the price of the third reportedly being raised to $150,000.
