Bankys: Stolen or acquired, but for sale

Two salvaged works by British street artist Banksy are unveiled. 'Sperm Alarm', and '2 Rats' are among some twenty pieces that will be put on display in a new exhibition ahead of a live auction in London. Called 'Stealing Banksy?' the exhibition will also feature other iconic wall pieces including 'OldSkool' and 'Balloon Girl' - most of which are still in the process of being restored. Both the exhibition and the sale have been organized by the Sincura Group, the same company which oversaw the controversial removal and sale of another famous Banksy in Miami. The salvaging of the piece caused a public outcry at the time and local campaigners had called for the mural to be returned to its community. According to the organizers, interest in the sale has been great, with one significant offer on one of the pieces already being made. 'Stealing Banksy?' will run at the ME London Hotel until April 24 with the live auction taking place on April 27.
