Banksy Mural Taken From London Wall Withdrawn in Miami Sale

Updated on

A Banksy mural recently removed from a London street was tonight withdrawn from an auction in Florida -- after starting a debate on who owns street art and when it can be sold.

The spray painting “Slave Labour,” showing a young boy making Union Jack bunting with a sewing machine, had been stenciled by the pseudonymous artist on the wall of a Poundland store in the Wood Green area of northeast London in 2012.
