The horizontal detachment of the ladies from the lit bombs comments on the ignorance of those in power to the devastation and damage of war and violence. Banksy’s iconic stencilled style is paired here with blocky, minimalistic elements of green which contrast the muted greyscale images of the bombs and ladies.

Estimate: £20,000- £30,000
