The Banksy image is a challenge to the medias glamorisation of war, by inferring that peace and freedom should be promoted in the face of tyranny and violence.
In Banksy’s book ‘Wall and Piece’ the image is accompanied by the caption, “It takes a lot of guts to stand up anonymously in a western democracy and call for things no one else believes in – like peace and justice and freedom.”
