Jack and Jill: Banksy's police kids
The screenprint on paper Jack and Jill depicts a boy and a girl skipping in front of the observer. They link arms chummily as they skip into - what appears to be - water, which wets the two up to their ankles.
Jack and Jill are clothed in innocence, except for the black bulletproof vests which reads “POLICE”. Such detail sharply contrasts with the idea of freedom associated to the image. Banksy thus brings up his criticism of many parents’ useless worries. In his book “Wall and Piece”, which sold over a million copies in the UK, the artist writes: “A lot of parents will do anything for their children except let them be themselves”.
With his artwork Jack and Jill, Banksy also addresses the shadows of a militaristic society that amplifies its presumption of evil, and consequently feels the need to overload its protective systems.
Banksy's works through street art and dark humor
The title of the print - also known as Banksy’s Police Kids - is an explicit reference to English 18th century doggerel Jack and Jill. It reads “Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill came tumbling after”.
Unlike many other Banksy artworks, Jack and Jill has never been depicted on a wall. The artist’s most popular technique (stencil) is skillfully combined with the theme of childhood, resulting in a darkly humorouscomposition.

His style features a subtle irony: Banksy makes us smile, facing at the same time critical issues of global society. Images like the Balloon Girl or Pulp Fiction have become icons of Street Art itself, and his installations like The Walled Off Hotel and Dismaland have introduced a new way of understanding art.
Banksy also made the documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop, earning an Oscar nomination. It tells the story of the street artist Mr. Brainwash.
Banksy’s urban interventions and studio works have been exhibited worldwide, and the market interest in his artworks experienced a huge growth in the last decade.
