The Banksy mural 'Slave Labour', that mysteriously disappeared from a north London wall amid wild speculation and intrigue, returns to the capital as the centrepiece of The Sincura Group’s latest private art exhibition and sale.

Banksy Slave labour piece

exclusive works from Banksy, Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Mario Testino and Russell Young along with a number of emerging young artists

The Sincura Group, the London based concierge specialists who pride themselves on obtaining the unobtainable, have once again pulled off a major coup by bringing this piece back to the capital to feature as the centrepiece of their next show, Banksy at the Flower Cellars.

Slave Labour, which depicts a young boy hunched over a sewing machine making Union Jack bunting, 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.

Having now been 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.

Alongside will be showing other exclusive works from Banksy, Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, Mario Testino and Russell Young along with a number of emerging young artists (possibly the Banksy's of the future).

Having taken months to put together and featuring works from some of the world’s leading private collections, many having never been seen in public before, let alone made available for purchase.

Celebrities, collectors and Sincura’s VIP clients are due to attend in force to see, and perhaps own, some of the most important artworks of the modern era.
Doors open at 6pm with complimentary champagne from sponsors Veuve Clicquot and canapés created by LMG under the guidance of ex-head of celebrity restaurant Zuma.
