Critical Review

Girl With Balloon has been produced in various iterations and has become one of Banksy’s most recognisable images. In a poll in 2002, Girl With Balloon was voted Britain’s favourite artwork, a testimony to the wide-ranging appeal of this iconic image. Girl With Balloon first appeared in 2002 spray painted onto a concrete wall under the stairway of a loading dock in London’s South Bank. While there are no remaining renditions left on the streets of London, subsequent series of canvases and prints capture the appeal of this compelling image.

The image of the girl reaching out for her balloon has become a symbol of innocence and hope. Banksy’s artworks are often deeply satirical and steeped in anti-establishment sentiment. This artwork is much lighter in tone and can be interpreted as a comment on freedom.
