Critical Review

The image of Girl With Balloon has become a symbol of innocence and hope and has also been seen as a comment on loss, temporarily and release. The artwork captures Banksy’s ability to make profound statements through simple designs. While Banksy’s artworks are often deeply satirical and steeped in anti-establishment values, this artwork is much lighter in tone and carries a more universal meaning.

Girl With Balloon has been produced in various iterations which is a testimony to its wide-reaching appeal. The image 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, like this version, capture the impact this image has left on the public.
