Bomb Hugger (Bomb Love)- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Banksy

Bomb Hugger (Bomb Love)
painting of woman enjoying a painting by Banksy

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm


The woman on my painting is enjoying a painting by Banksy. It features a girl with a ponytail stencilled in black and white hugging a bomb. The background is a block fluorescent pink to exaggerate the figure in the foreground.

This artwork is highlighting modern society’s obsession with warfare, with bombs that the governments manufacture like toys. Banksy challenges the press and politicians who portray warfare in a positive light by suggesting it is the right course of action to promote democracy, and peace. It could equally be said that Banksy also suggests that the forces of love may yet prevail.
