Another Banksy robbed from the streets of London

Once again street art in London is being removed so wealthy art dealers can have a slice of the Banksy pie.

We were disheartened to hear that Slave Labour was removed from a Poundland wall in Wood Green earlier this year, so it comes as an even bigger shock to see another one of his works has also gone missing. No Ball Games was taken from Tottenham Green last week.

It starts to beg the question, is street art safe anymore?

Street art has always been for the masses, and we’re pretty sure that Banksy, despite his clear political messages, would never want his artwork removed from walls.

Maybe this is a clever ploy by art houses to get Banksy to create more aggravated artworks – of course, for them to steal. Or maybe it will send him into hiding, or even a new city? Who knows!
