The Balloon Girl

{From Stencil Revolution}
Banksys The Balloon Girl first started appearing on various London walls in 2002. The work has been known by several titles: There is Always Hope Balloon Girl, The Girl with the Red Balloon, and Red Heart, among others. The painting has been reproduced several times, not all containing the words There is Always Hope, though the most popular copies contains these words. The prints are available through many art dealers in various sizes. Reference here.
