Original Banksy pieces for auction sale

No Ball Games

Go Flock Yourself

Two original works by Banksy, “No Ball Games” and “Go Flock Yourself,” will be auctioned off on February 26th at the London flagship location of Selfridges when they host “Urban Art” in conjunction with auction house Dreweatts.

Banksy collectors will surely be keeping a close eye on these two lots to see how prices hold up during this global economic crisis. “No Ball Games,” measuring 91 x 91.5 cm, carries an estimate of £30,000-60,000. The similarly sized “Go Flock Yourself” is estimated to fetch between £40,000-60,000, with the higher estimate most likely attributed to the donation of a percentage of the hammer price to The Prince’s Trust Success Collection, a charity focused on training and jobs for young adults.

The Banksy works and all of the other pieces in the auction will be available for public viewing from February 20th - 25th.
