Girl with Balloon (also, Balloon Girl or Girl and Balloon) is a 2002-started London series of stencil murals by the graffiti artist Banksy, depicting a young girl with her hand extended toward a red heart-shaped balloon carried away by the wind.
The first work was on Waterloo Bridge, and other murals were around London, though none remain there. Banksy has several times used variants of this design to support social campaigns: in 2005 about the West Bank barrier, in 2014 about the Syrian refugee crisis, and also about the 2017 UK election.
A 2017 Samsung poll ranked Girl with Balloon as the United Kingdom's number one favorite artwork. In 2018, a framed copy of the work spontaneously shredded during an auction, by way of a mechanical device Banksy had hidden in the frame.
Banksy authenticated he was responsible for the shredding and gave the altered piece a new name, Love is in the Bin. Sotheby said it was "the first work in history ever created during a live auction."
