Love Hurts by Banksy is a 2012 signed screen print, from an edition of 16. The colourful artwork depicts a heart-shaped balloon caught in barbed wire and bearing two plasters, perhaps conveying that love brings both joy and pain, or that love heals.
Love Hurts was released by Banksy in a special signed artist proof edition of just 16 made available only for VIP friends of the artist, making it an exceptionally rare and sought-after piece. The image first made its debut as a street mural during the artist's New York residency, Better Out Than In.
Love Hurts is one of Banksy’s colourful works, more lighthearted in its tone than his usual satirical style. It depicts a red heart-shaped balloon against a baby-blue background. The balloon has become tangled in a barbed wire fence and also appears to have already sustained previous damage based on the two plasters in the top right of the balloon - suggesting a broken or bruised heart. Evidently this piece is about love, and how, it can be painful as it is joyful. Perhaps there is also something in the notion that love will set you free.
