Banksy's No Ball Games set for auction

A Banksy mural entitled No Ball Games will auction in 2014, according to The Sincura Group.

The piece is to be renovated before being gifted to a local charity ahead of the sale

The group, which describes itself as "market leaders in VIP concierge, lifestyle, tickets and events", was behind the disputed $1.1m sale of Banksy's Slave Labour mural in May.

The Slave Labour auction caused outrage among the residents of London's Wood Green, after it was mysteriously removed from the wall of a shop and then later surfaced at auction.

Many residents felt that the piece was a gift from the artist, and should have been left in place for the public to enjoy.

Similarly, the current No Ball Games piece has been "salvaged" from a shop wall in Tottenham.

However, in an effort to quell adverse reaction from locals, The Sincura Group has gifted the piece to local homeless charity Step by Step temporarily.

No Ball Games is apparently one of three "controversial headline pieces" set to feature in a 2014 art exhibition held by Sincura ahead of the sale

In June, a special piece that Banksy created in the wake of Hurricane Katrina sold for $65,000 at Neal Auction Company.
