Hi,

I've been trying to find some info re a mural on the southbank.

It shows a little girl chasing a red balloon and is just before clink street heading east towards borough market.

Can anyone shed any light on this or even provide decent pictures of it?


Thanks,


James

I think it may be one of the many and various contributions in the area by political agitator / graphic artist 'Banksy'

I meant to add - take a look at www.banksy.co.uk for more.

Hi James,

It is a Banksy... If you PM with an email address, I can probably find a couple of pictures of it that I have snapped.

Thanks for the web site address... his stuff is brilliant.

A few years ago, around Shoreditch, someone painted silhouettes of street furniture, with a time of painting. i.e. as a shadow cast from the actual object. The time would inevitably be around dawn where the shadows would be longest. A nice witty bit of art / graffiti I thought.

Anyone else see that? I wonder now if it was Banksy.

I had a look in some Banksy books that someone brought me, but I couldn't find anything like that, but I have seen someting like that on the Hackney Rd, so it was probably him.

Was Banksy responsible for the singing rats too?

and you can buy prints from a company called picturesonwalls (google it, they have a website).

...if you press it, they will come.
