BANKSY

Banksy's Girl With Balloon first appeared on the side of a bridge on the South Bank in London in 2002. At first glance, the stencil seems to depict a little girl sadly watching her red heart-shaped balloon drift away. But on closer examination one understands that the young girl is releaseing her balloon and she stands still and emotionless. The heart shape, which is the only spot of colour, stands for innocence, dreams, hopes and love. More than being just a child's toy, the balloon here evokes fragility. The image of the young girl letting go of her balloon suggests that innocence can easily be lost. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Banksy is known to mock society and implies through his artwork that society makes children grow up too fast. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our all-over balloon print is inspired by Banksy, representing a hope for better days.
