This print "No Ball Games" by Banksy is based on a 2009 mural at the junction of Tottenham High Road and Philip Lane in North London. Two children are playing "ball" with a sign that reads "No Ball Games". In his typical ironic way, Banksy criticises how even simple children's games are now controlled and regulated. However, the children should also be seen as proxies and thus his criticism attacks the overall increase in surveillance and control of society.
In 2013, the mural was removed and sold in 3 parts to support disadvantaged children.
