About the artwork

This screenprint is one of Banksy’s most iconic works. Juxtaposing the depiction of soldiers and a peace sign, a gun and a paintbrush, Banksy addresses the fraught intersections of art and war. Enacting graffiti’s sub-culture status as physical violence against buildings and conceptual violence against ideas of social order, the image boldly asserts its disobedience. Setting soldiers alongside the peace sign makes the soldiers’ physical presence into an emblem of war, and makes a bold political statement against the dehumanisation of soldiers. Banksy’s trademark use of black silhouettes reinforces the symbolism of red; here the dripping paint overtly references the bloodshed of war, drawing attention to the uncertain role of the military in achieving peace

About the artist

Banksy is arguably the most pioneering artist of his generation. Banksy’s astute use of context, coupled with his satirical and subversive political and social commentary, high profile stunts and record auction results have made him one of the most ubiquitous and important artists of our time.
