Longing and whimsy, innocence and experience, irreverence and wit,

as well as a penchant for the purely zany, coexist in Banksy’s work. 

Will Ellsworth-Jones  (Smithsonian Magazine)

https://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/the-story-behind-banksy-4310304/ 

In October of 2013, Banksy became 'Artist in Residence' for the City of New York. An honor so prestigious, but he made it up and awarded it to himself! Banksy began a one-month “show on the streets of New York,” for which he opened a separate website and Twitter account. Each day of the month in October 2013(barring those where “police activity” scuttled his plans), Banksy created works at random locations around the city — often in the form of satirical messages stenciled on walls. Banksy even provided an audio-guide available on a toll-free number for each work created, as if each of those works were part of a curated exhibit within a museum with audio-guides. Each piece drew hundreds of curious onlookers as it was discovered. 

Now, the question is, what ever happened to all that art? Almost all of it is gone. The majority were defaced by other graffiti artists within a few hours. The only pieces that survive are the ones that were immediately protected. 

While the value of Banksy’s pieces soars, a poignancy attends some of Banksy’s creative output. A number of his works exist only in memory, or photographs or coexist with other artists work.

“Brooklyn" is obviously an iconic representation of the battle to survive a broken heart. It’s an uplifting visual poem to that most fragile of human emotions that seem to move within us as if on a soft breeze,” an audio guide at banksy.co.uk explains.

Lulu Almiron Collection, New York


The red balloon, as the only spot of color, is an archetypal symbol of childhood and freedom many of us connect with. More than a simple child’s toy, it evokes fragility of what it stands for: innocence, dreams, hope and love. Girl with Balloon is one of Banksy’s many works that focus on the theme of childhood.

The artist utilizes the innocence and moral virtue associated with children to turn a mirror on society, foregrounding its faults and injustices.Banksy frequently combines images of childhood, and its closely connected notions of both purity and nostalgia, with somber and despondent themes of war, political division, and mass surveillance. In doing so, the tenderness of the child’s image evokes an increasingly powerful and provocative message. 

Viewers of Girl with Balloon cannot help but feel empathy for the young child’s loss. But, at the same time, her out-reached hand embodies a determined and admirable longing for something better. For this reason, the image has become a universal symbol of optimism.
