With its stunning simplicity and raw immediacy, Girl with Balloon is one of Banksy's most widely shared images today. In a 2017 poll, this undeniably iconic and culturally impactful image was voted the most popular artwork among Britons.
The Girl with Balloon first appeared as a graffiti mural outside a shop in Shoreditch in 2002 and later the same year on London's Southbank, this time with the words "There is Always Hope".
The painting came to worldwide fame when it was shredded during a Sothebys auction in 2018.
