Where form meets function

Known for causing mass provocation wherever he goes, including the West Bank, famed British artist, Banksy, recently took to Instagram to announce a very special giveaway; a thank you of sorts to those willing to vote “against the Conservative incumbent.”

The “UK Election Souvenir Special” is a rendition of the artist’s popular representation of a small girl contemplating the loss of her heart-shaped red balloon. Only this time, the balloon has been covered in the colors of the Union Jack, and as stated by Banksy on Instagram, ”symbolises how I feel about Britain. It is losing it’s heart… gradually becoming a fascist, insular society.” Check out the posts below and let us know if you belong to one of the souvenir’s eligible constituencies.
