         Balloon Girl, or Girl With Balloon, is one of Banksy's most important series of works, demonstrating the graffiti stencil technique for which he has become renowned.

The painting depicts a young girl with her hand extended toward a red heart-shaped balloon carried away by the wind. It presents a powerful message that can be read in a number of ways;  whether you see the girl as losing the balloon, or about to catch it, the symbolism can be interpreted as a loss of innocence or the arrival of new hope and love.

The stencil originally appeared in London's Southbank, accompanied by the words 'there is always hope', as well as other sites around London, though none still remain. 

A 2017 Samsung poll ranked Girl with Balloon as the United Kingdom's number one favourite artwork.

It was released as an unsigned and signed print in 2004/2005. There are just 150 signed prints and 600 unsigned making it one of the most sought-after works from the artist.

This is a rare opportunity to own one of the 600 unsigned Banksy Balloon Girl prints. It comes in good condition, with a full paper conservator's report and is fully certified by Pest Control.
