Banksy (1974) - CND Soldiers

Author: BANKSY Title: CND Soldiers Date created: 2005 Size: 68 x 48 cm 180g semi-gloss paper. Prints were available on the international exhibition: "Banksy The Art of Protest." New to frame. Shipping in a rigid tube via certified express mail. It is possible to collect more than one object, from the same auction, in the same shipment CND Soldiers is an anti-war art statement that was placed directly across from the British Parliament and was later removed by authorities. At the time this work was placed, there was a long standing anti-war protest led by peace campaigner, Brian Haw. Brian Haw began protesting outside the British Parliament prior to 2001 for their participation in attacks on Iraq and had become a symbol of peace, nationally. The print shows two soldiers surreptitiously placing a peace symbol in red paint, symbolizing the color of blood on the wall. One soldier act as the scout, surveying their surroundings for would-be onlookers while the other performs the task of placing the symbol. It is ironic that solders acting on behalf of the government, not ordinary citizens are the ones placing the symbol on the wall. The print suggests that even individuals who are vehicles and pawns of war have grown tired of their entanglements and want out.
