His piece, “Girl With Balloon,” was meant to be viewed by those who have lost or are losing hope. The city wall that holds this piece of art is not well kept, spray painted in what is likely an area that is impoverished and full of dying hopes and dreams. Banksy’s purpose is found in the eye-catching heart-shaped red balloon that is followed by the portrayed innocence of a young girl reaching towards love and hope, and of course the statement behind it, says it all on it’s own; no matter what the circumstances, don’t give up – don’t lose hope. This image is meant to bring about desire for a new way of living, and certainly the aspect of finding hope. A child will most likely be drawn to the red balloon and portrait of themselves, whereas the adult will be drawn to the saying behind the portrait.
Her impulse to paint is driven by her current emotion; this would explain the passion inserted into each peace of art. Edna is fascinated by painting and attempts to sketch and paint her friends. She has the opportunity to paint Adele Ratignolle, a woman she claims to be as poised as a Madonna. "Never had that lady seemed a more tempting subject than at that moment, seated there like some sensuous Madonna, with the gleam of the fading day enriching her splendid color" (22). Edna attempts to capture the scene with Adele and replicate it on her sketch pad but falls short.
I remember before summer even started feeling stressed out about finals, which can relate to the darker parts of her piece. Once summer began I was that bee portrayed in her artwork just going with the flow, creating those hot pink splashes of memories until summer had ended. I think this is why this piece is so valuable and useful because I can relate it back to myself, my life, and the people I've shared it with. Art really can leave everlasting impressions and make one feel like they were just caught in a memory from years ago. It can make one remember the past, embrace the present, and be hopeful of the future.
The words ‘There Is Always Hope’ are written just behind the young girl who can be seen losing a red balloon in the shape of a heart to the wind, showing the clear message of the painting. While the image may symbolize loss, the test on the right tells us that no amount of loss can eliminate the hope. The image brings a variety of ideas of love, innocence, hope, innocence, childhood, longing, whimsy, experience, wit and even self-confidence. Maybe the piece is supposed to represent a loss of hope or that what you desire is within your reach? The meaning is a positive remain of that there is always
Maybe a unique outfit or something would do the job. During the time this artwork was created, Ringgold played a role in the organization of protests and actions against museums that did not show the work of women and people of color. She usually used “overly political paintings” to present her anger (Spector, Nancy). Within this work, she used a story quilt. Everyone loved it!
“One Dream, One Band, One Direction” “I never would mistreat you, oh I’m not a criminal, I speak a different language but I still hear you call. Diana, let me be the one to light a fire inside those eyes, you’ve been lonely, you don’t even know me, but I can feel you crying. Diana, let me be the one to lift your heart up and save your life, I don’t think you’d even realize baby you’d be saving mine” (“Diana”- One Direction, A-Z Lyrics). The song “Diana,” that One Direction wrote is quite strong. Diana stands for a girl, more specifically their fans.
Picasso put emphasis on this by using the red stripes beginning at the girl’s chest extending all the way to the ends of her fingertips. I kept looking back and forth from one side of the painting to the other side because of just that one little aspect. The red stripes help to create unity and rhythm within the painting making it whole and balanced. The organic curves as well as the repeating circles also bring unity to the composition. The colors Picasso used in Girl Before a Mirror play a huge part in stimulating emotion and providing balance.

Lily is no longer a passive woman confused about her artistic abilities. Time’s passage is inevitable, but Lily learns that she can match wits with time by using her artistic talents. Mrs. Ramsay had shown Lily that time can be stopped with beauty, but Lily opts for a more realistic capture of time with artwork that transcends all ages. As a female artist, Lily dashes Mrs. Ramsay’s hopes as well as overcomes the societal expectations for her to become married.
Events such as bad things happening to innocent people, changes in weather, and natural disasters happen every day and possess reasons behind them that the mind may not perceive. One example of this theme in life is terrible events happening to innocent people. This happens when citizens are stuck in the middle of wars in the middle-east. Innocent men, women, and children are starving, ransomed, or killed, but there must be a reason behind this. It may seem immensely evil, in fact these events are atrocities of modern life, but the deadlock between corrupt government and rebel groups may lead to a better future for the country.
I like the fact that he is brave enough to challenge society and call out the corruptions that many people are blind to. A lot of artists don’t have style and when you see a Banksy piece, you know it’s his art. It’s like the art actually hits you and makes you feel something. I feel that Banksy’s art can make a change in this world and people need to appreciate it more. He is sharing his gift and wisdom to the world and it’s importance is being taken for
