This iconic work of street art was originally found in London and might be the most famous work by Banksy.
The artwork features a young girl with her hand outstretched grasping for a heart shaped balloon carried away by the wind.
At first it isn't clear weather or not the child let go of the balloon on purpose or by accident
Then you notice, in the background of the art lies the message: “There is always hope.”
There is obviously some sort of symbolism involved in this piece. It is up to us to decide what the balloon means. What is Banksy trying to tell us?
These words highlight the fact that the girl is reaching for the balloon and that it was likely an accident. All the same, she is hopeful that she will grab the balloon.
Many have assumed that this is a metaphor for maintaining persistence in our lives and in society, to show us to always try hard and hope for the best.

If you don't already know, the artist Banksy is a global phenomenon. The renowned street artist activist has a reputation for creating controversial and thought provoking art that mysteriously appears all around the world.

Some common themes in his artwork are economic criticisms of society, staying true to yourself, self-expression and hope.
Banksy’s motives appear to be to spread awareness and change perceptions about issues he is passionate about in society.

The "wood" frame is particle board and really just a step up from cardboard at that. The frame feels very cheap and I am very cautious when handling the artwork because I feel like it could be easily broken.
The canvas is decent and seems durable enough. The print seems acceptable -- although, the image isn't sharp and appears soft/slightly-blurred when viewed closely (6 ft or closer). The image doesn't stretch around the sides of the canvas and makes it look like a cheap print. The canvas also has a slight amount of slack and ripple to it. It isn't enough to cause me to return it and can only be viewed with a glare from lighting over it, but is definitely noticeable.
It was packaged well and came undamaged. The corners were reinforced with cardboard and styrofoam, and the whole canvas was sealed in plastic. The box was also marked with the Wall26 name. The item was shipped fast (2 days to CO) with standard shipping.
I probably won't buy again but would recommend to others for cheap wall art -- however, I would caution them about my experience, and encourage them to shop some more and compare.
