ripped up a lithograph

I may not understand the complexities of lithography, but isn't this essentially similar as ripping apart a poster of the Mona Lisa? Unless the original printing source was destroyed, can't the "artist" just make another one?

Yes, the original painting of this so-called artist can be used to make further copies.

Basically, yes. However, lithography tends to deteriorate over time as more prints which are run. That's why "artists" generally sell them in limited, numbered editions.

In these case, however, I would bet there was no intention to sell numbered lithographs, just be provocative.
