Shredding the Girl and Balloon - The Director’s half cut
Banksy video shows shredding ‘Girl with Balloon’ painting was intentional
Banksy's Girl with Balloon artwork was meant to shred entirely after it was auctioned
Banksy Girl With Balloon Original
Balloon Girl is 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 favourite artwork.
