The case concerned a Banksy mural called ‘Art Buff’, which appeared on the back of a leasehold property in September 2014 during the Folkestone Triennial, a public art event organised by the Creative Foundation.

Just over a month after it first appeared, the tenant of the property, Dreamland, arranged for ‘Art Buff’ to be cut out of the wall, without the landlord’s knowledge or permission, and then sent to the US where it was offered for sale.
