description

Nola Girl with Umbrella appeared on a New Orleans wall when Banksy was there in 2008. There is a depressing feel to this work. In an interview, Banksy said that this stencil represents how things that are supposed to protect us can also hurt us. The girl is standing under the umbrella, a portable roof, but is getting rained on regardless.The umbrella should be protecting her from the rain, but it is instead its source. She is holding out her hand to see if it is like that outside the umbrella.
