Girl with Balloon by Banksy voted Britain's favorite art work

Posted on July 28, 2017

In a recent poll held by tech company Samsung to promote their newest tv asking Brits about their favorite works of art, Banksy's iconic Girl With Balloon took to the number one spot. 

Two thousand people were handed a shortlist that also featured works by John Constable, Henry Moore and Anish Kapoor. But it was the graffiti artist that received the most votes. 

Girl with Balloon has seen many forms since it's first appearance on a shop wall in Shoreditch, London, but the image is still as powerful today as it was those 15 years ago.
