Banksy CND Soldiers is probably one of his most notorious anti-war statements, Banksy CND Soldiers is a limited edition silkscreen print from 2005 published by Pictures on Walls in an edition of 350 signed, and 350 unsigned prints.
It was outside the Houses of Parliament that the image first appeared during an anti-war protest led by Brian Haw, an English peace campaigner who lived for a decade in the Westminster peace camp. At the time the UK’s involvement in the 2003 Iraq war had been brought to light, and the fact that millions of people, including soldiers, protested against the invasion was reportedly ignored.
The painting shows two soldiers, one soldier painting the famous peace symbol in red, while the other soldier keeps a lookout as the soldier is ironically painting a large peace symbol in red paint. Even the Soldiers Know that enough is enough and want to be heard.
