According to the British platform team, «Banksy has used art as a weapon against war throughout his career», and his «anti-war CND Soldiers image is more relevant than ever». 

CND Soldiers’ work first appeared in front of the British Parliament in 2003. It was a reaction to the news that the British military would be involved in a war in Iraq. The painting depicts two soldiers, one holding a machine gun at the ready while the other paints a large red peace symbol on a wall with paint.

Pictures on Walls of London published 700 printed copies in 2005. The anonymous owner of one of them provided a copy for sale on MyArtBroker.
