For Banksy fans, their first exposure to Banksy’s No Ball Games image occurred when Banksy threw up the graffiti stencil in the North London neighborhood of Tottenham in 2009 before it was released as a print in both grey and green colorways. 2009 would be a turning point for Banksy as he parted ways with the long-time gallerist, Steve Lazarides, and announced that the entity known only as the Pest Control office would be the sole point of sales moving forward for future artwork sales.
Banksy’s No Ball Games eludes to a liberation of childhood and children’s exemption from life’s rules and expectations. The children are in an area not zoned for fun and play but do so in defiance without care going so far as to toss the sign as if it were a toy.
