    Showing two children playing a game of catch in which the ball ironically becomes a sign forbidding such play, No Ball Games was first shown at the artist's 2006 blockbuster "Barely Legal" Los Angeles exhibition and later reproduced as a mural on a North London shop wall. The latter was notoriously later included in the unauthorized exhibition "Stealing Banksy."
