Napalm, 2004
Screenprint on paper
Edition of 150, Signed
50 x 70 cm

With ‘Napalm’, Banksy reinterprets the Pulitzer Prize winning photograph of a young Vietnamese girl running from Napalm bombing in 1972.

Positioning the child between Mickey Mouse and Ronald McDonald, two symbols of American commercial imperialism and capitalism, Banksy seems to intend to transpose the meaning of the original image to the context of a 21st century marked and brand-driven world.
Desperation and fear appear to be produced by the two figures, and it is unclear wether they are walking with the girl or forcing her to walk with them.
