Banksy's Napalm (Serpentine edition) (2006) is a screen print from a special edition of 50. It reworks Nick Ut's "The Terrors of War" photo, showing Mickey Mouse and Ronald McDonald holding a young girl whose village was napalmed. The piece satirizes corporations, transforming the original's war imagery into an unsettling ambiguity.
Napalm is undoubtedly one of Banksy’s most powerful, hard-hitting works, cementing his position as a pioneering political contemporary artist. Napalm is a mostly monochromatic screen print in three colours. The work references a photograph taken during the Vietnam War, showing a nine year-old-girl (Kim Phuc) running from the horror of a Napalm blast. The moment was captured by photographer Nick Ut. On this print, Banksy took the photograph as his context for creating a disarming juxtaposition – we have two supposedly friendly American icons of consumerism (Ronald McDonald and Mickey Mouse), smiling as they lead the terrorised girl away from a disaster. This artwork is a quintessential and especially strong formulation of Banksy’s critique of the military-industrialist complex, linking violent conflict and capitalism. This is also demonstrated in other works like Bomb Hugger and Happy Choppers.
