In Banksy's 2009 oil on canvas painting Devolved Parliament, chimps take the place of British legislators speaking in the House of Commons.
The chimpanzee imagery is reminiscent of Banksy's 2002 piece Laugh Now, which features a series of apes wearing aprons and the words "Laugh now, but one day we’ll be in charge."22
Kissing Coppers, 2004
The two policemen are depicted in black and white. Both people are painted in full uniform, with handcuffs and batons clearly visible around both of their belts. This depiction of same-sex affection is a typical element of art that dates back to Michelangelo's Sistine Ceiling in the 16th century.22
In order to dispel the myth that war is a necessary and advantageous component of democracy, Banksy set out to create Bomb Hugger. The act of a child hugging a missile both showed the affection for warfare that the public was asked to have and exaggerated the contrast between peace and war. It was designed to frighten viewers to see someone so helpless and yet so near to harm. However, Bomb Hugger also conveys a different, happier message: goodness and love can end all wars. In his 2004 book Cut It Out, Banksy stated that "Suicide bombers just need a hug."22
Banksy, a graffiti artist, created a mural in 2015 titled The Son of a Migrant from Syria. The encampment near Calais, France, where migrants resided while trying to enter the UK, known as the Calais jungle, was where the mural was found. The artwork shows late Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs, whose parents immigrated to the country22
Flying Copper shows a strange character on a flat-colored background that is either sky blue or pink depending on the edition: a police officer who is fully outfitted with a machine gun, helmet, walkie-talkie, and handcuffs, but who is also topped with a smiley face and a pair of tiny angelic wings. Depending on how it is interpreted, the smiley can refer to both the innocence of childhood and the acid house movement of the 1990s.
One Nation Under CCTV, 2007
It shows a little youngster writing the phrase while being observed by a police officer and a dog. The painting itself created on the wall of a Royal Mail-used building. A CCTV camera was placed next to the mural. In April 2009, the mural was painted over.
