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.
