TellyGerren Peters (Salish & Nuu-chah-nulth)
This playful print references the "Banksy" Girl with balloon mural that showed up in 2002 on the Waterlook bridge in South Bank, a district in central London. The image has been re-imagined through the eyes of Northwest Coast artist Gerren Peters. The balloon, in this case, is an elaborated ovoid known as a Salmon Trout Head design. The red headband and feather also reference the Indigenous origins of the print and the little girl pictured within it.
