Performance artist devours $120,000 banana at Miami beach gallery

Peggy Leboeuf, the gallery director was not amused by the unauthorised improvisation by Mr Datuna, whose portrait of Vladimir Putin constructed from miniature images of the Mona Lisa, fetched $269,000 in 2011.

 “He was not arrested. But we asked him to leave the booth and leave the fair.

“We have his contact and everything. We can go further, but I don’t think we will.”

All is not lost, however. The piece, entitled “Comedian’ has retained its value thanks to a certificate of authenticity and the owner is free to replace the banana – and duct tape.
