UNKNOWN ARTIST: Banksy-style Balloon Girl art appears in Chalfont St Peter

 Published on: 31st March 2021   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Banksy-style Balloon Girl art appeared on a fence in Chalfont St Peter and residents have mixed views about it.

Over the past few months more and more graffiti have been appearing in the village and people believe the same person is behind the Balloon Girl art too.

Many telecom junction boxes in the village have been spray painted with stylised hearts. 

Lamp posts, mail boxes, road signs and the M&S trolley shelter have been daubed too.

A resident confirmed that the Balloon Girl art is not graffiti, it’s a stencil that has been pinned to the fence, therefore not permanent.

Some people have taken to social media and expressed their joy in seeing the graffiti hearts appear in the village, as they see them as a message of positivity.

Others instead are quite frustrated with the whole situation and they want the person responsible to stop.

One resident commented on Facebook: “Love it, brightens up a full fence.”

Another person said: “A schoolmate of mine was caught painting the subway wall back in the 70s, was caught in the act and made, as part of his punishment, to clean it off. Why does everyone treat this Banksy character as anything other than the criminal he\she is?”
