About

Banksy Bomb Hugger (Bomb Love) 2005 Bomb Hugger, also known as Bomb Love or Bomb Girl, is a screenprint from Banksy’s early career. The image of a girl hugging a deadly weapon is quite iconic and explores the dichotomy of love and war – a topic largely treated by the artist. A very similar image of Bomb Hugger first appeared as a mural in East London in 2003 and another version was painted in Brighton the same year. Bomb Hugger features in Banksy’s autobiographical book « Wall and Piece » published in 2005. Then 150 signed screen-prints were released as a limited edition along with 600 unsigned prints. The screen-print came in one single colourway, fluorescent pink. Over the years Banksy reproduced the image in many different formats like on canvas or on placards on the occasion of anti-war protests. ?Banksy’s Bomb Hugger foregrounds a ponytailed young girl hugging a bomb as if it were a cuddly toy. The bomb, akin to those dropped from military aircraft, is imposing in her small hands. The figure of the young girl was made from a black and white stencil on a blocked bubble-gum pink background so as to accentuate her figure in the foreground but also to evoke childhood innocence. The girl’s attitude is reminiscent of other young characters painted by Banksy like the famous Girl with Balloon painted in London in 2002 or the Ice Cream Bomb Girl painted on Brighton Beach in 2004.
