Missing Banksy Goes on Sale

The Hot on the heels of the controversy about the missing Banksy mural 'Slave Labour' which disappeared from a north London wall amid wild speculation and intrigue, it returns to the capital as the centrepiece of a private art exhibition and sale at the Flowers Cellars.

The mural first appeared just prior to the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of 2012, on the wall of a Poundland store in North London's Wood Green. In February of this year the mural and the wall it featured on mysteriously disappeared resulting in a media frenzy and wild speculation as to its whereabouts, within just two days it surfaced at a Miami auction house making headlines worldwide.

Sensitively restored under a cloak of secrecy, the piece will be returning to London for one night only to be shown at the London Film Museum in London's Covent Garden on June 2nd. Exclusive works from Banksy, Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Mario Testino and Russell Young along with a number of emerging young artists .
