300gsm card stock with an enhanced polymer finish.
This piece was firstly vectored directly from the original artwork when it came into our office for restoration and management. We use advanced scanning technology to ensure the piece is the most accurate available.
We then digitally printed on the thick card and use a unique 3D print enhancer to lay a polymer film over the art giving it a very high level of finish. The artwork stands out with a deep still wet look as a result of this stunning process. The card is then passed through the printers for the second as we add the special foiling on the balloon. Please ntoe the foil has only been added to the A3 print.
This revolutionary technique gives a brilliant tactile finish and we are the only company using this technology ensuring your piece stands out and is unique.
A limited edition run of just 50 of this piece has been created. If the piece is showing sold out then it means all 50 have been sold - and no more will be created. The piece comes with a Sincura authentication certificate and unique numbers on the back - and you can choose whether to buy just the sealed print or a fully framed piece ready for hanging.

ABOUT THE ORIGINAL PIECE
Painted 2004 - salvaged 2014. Location London.
While the rat is Banksy’s signature stencil, the Girl With The Red Balloon is his most popular and depicts an innocent girl reaching for a red heart-shaped balloon that is just beyond her grasp.
Banksy chose two locations for this famous creation – one on the stairwell of the South Bank and the other on Great Eastern Street on the borders of Liverpool Street Station. Almost a decade ago, the latter was covered with advertising billboards and doomed to a fate of unceremonious decay and erosion.
Thousands of Londoners walked past the piece each day on their morning commute to work completely oblivious of its existence as it faded from the public knowledge. The Sincura Group was commissioned to salvage and restore this stunning piece.
When we removed the billboards we estimated the piece would have been completely destroyed within 12 month, the paint was flaking and the girl’s face was hanging from the front.
Specialist art restorers were called in to stabilise the piece on the wall for the first week before we could even start the cutting process.
