About the artwork
Ku - In this work by Auguste, the silhouette of Bansky’s infamous Balloon Girl is seen against a background featuring images of pop culture symbols and figures, such as James Bond, Pink Panther and the Hermes logo, while a cutout of her balloon is positioned next to the work. By positioning these images in association with each other, Auguste invariably links art, luxury consumer goods and the media together, thus making a statement about the state of society and our consumption in this day and age. Auguste’s unique artistic vision and voice has garnered widespread appreciation for his colorful contemporary works, and he has participated in exhibitions throughout the US, Europe and Asia.
