BANKSY NO BALL GAMES MUG
NO BALL GAMES
PAINTED: 2009, SALVAGED: 2013
Spray paint on plywood and measuring 90” in length and 48” wide, the piece shows a security guard with a moustache with the slogan reading ‘he graffiti artwork ‘No Ball Games’ by the British street artist Banksy was created in September 2009 in Tottenham Green, N15. One of his most famous pieces to date and featuring prominently on Banksy’s website, ‘No Ball Games’ depicts two children playing catch with a vandalised no ball games sign.
A number of attempts have been made over the past to deface the piece, most famously in 2012 by King Robbo who holds a rivalry with the elusive artist. With extensive building works taking place in the local vicinity, and further concerns upon its safety, the piece has been removed to be sensitively restored to its former glory. ‘No Ball Games’ has been gifted to a local charity with all sale profits being fed back into the community from where it originated.
