'Girl with Balloon', originally painted by Banksy, appeared for the first time as a mural on Waterloo Bridge, in South Bank, London 2002. Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based street artist, political activist and film director whose real name and identity remain unconfirmed.

This striking visual was accompanied by the quotation “There is always hope”. This painting uses only three colours - black, white, and red. In terms of technique, our artist will guide you on how to use a 'dry-brush' technique to achieve the grungy feel of the original.
