Kids On Guns was released in 2003 in an edition of 25 and is yet another example of his artworks featuring his iconic figure from Balloon Girl. The painting was made using black acrylic and spray paint. It depicts the silhouettes of two children holding a teddy bear, standing on top of a hill of weapons.

The simple colour contrasts gives the images a profound meaning. The children stand for innocence, love and hope despite being surrounded by the violence and suffering represented by the dark pile of guns.

Kids On Guns’s is created with stencil silhouettes of a young boy and girl standing atop a hill of weapons and guns. Surrounded by violence and threat, both characters are looking at each other, the boy’s left hand is resting on the girl’s shoulder as a sign of support. They seem victorious as they stand atop the pile of weapons.
