Balloon Girl

Balloon Girl, 2017 by Mr. Brainwash is an original Silkscreen and Mixed Media on Paper with Stencil, Acrylic, Collage, and Spray Paint.  A one-of-a-kind artwork featuring Banksy’s iconic Balloon Girl. Mr. Brainwash’s special signature is on the back including a thumbprint and dollar bill sequence.  Artwork comes with official Mr. Brainwash certificate of authenticity with corresponding half dollar bill.

Balloon Girl is originally a 2002 mural by graffiti artist Banksy depicting a young girl letting go of a red heart-shaped balloon. Banksy has used a variant of this image in his 2014 campaign supporting Syrian refugees. Another variant Banksy created for the 2017 United Kingdom general election generated controversy after he offered free prints for some anti-Conservative voter, and he soon retracted the offer. A 2017 Samsung poll ranked Balloon Girl as the United Kingdom’s number one favorite artwork.

Mr. Brainwash is a French street artist and videographer known for his large-scale installations and prints of celebrities like Madonna, Kate Moss, and Marilyn Monroe. His practice of subverting cultural iconography and appropriation borrows from Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Bansky. Fellow street artist Alec Monopoly has said that he considers Mr. Brainwash a mentor.
