"You can say anything is a work of art... but if you burn a Banksy and then want money for it, that ranks pretty low on the art scale for me."
The group behind the stunt said it was "on a mission to bridge the world of physical art with NFTs". I would say they achieved their goal, a PR buzz for a new VC-backed NFT-platform that has enough money to burn. Tasteless, IMHO
