A Banksy mural has shown up in a US art auction. The mural in question was on the side of a Poundland shop in Wood Green in London. It showed a small boy sewing Union Jack bunting in a sweat shop. It was thought to be a comment on the Diamond Jubilee.
The art was covered with acrylic to protect it, and it became a local tourist attraction. But after scaffolding was erected around the site, the mural disappeared - and showed up online.
The salePoundland confirmed to the Guardian that it didn't own the building and it hadn't removed the artwork.
Fine Art Auctions Miami, which is handling the sale, told The Sun it was being sold by a collector who had signed a contract to confirm everything was 'above board'.
It is expected to sell for at least £450,000.
CampaignA local MP is leading calls for its return. Alan Strickland, Labour Councillor for Noel Park & Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Social Inclusion in Haringey, has started a press campaign.
He has appeared in newspapers and on TV around the world. He tweeted: "Pls RT. Save our Banksy from sale. Let's all email art company auctioning it on email@example.com. Tell them to withdraw it from auction."
The question is who owns these artworks? The artist? The community? Or the person who owns the wall? What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
