Slave Labour (Bunting Boy) - 2012 Black and white aerosol on concrete, embellished with plastic flags Executed by Banksy in May 2012 on the outer wall of a Poundland discount store in Wood Green, London. Slave Labour depicts a young child on his knees at a sewing machine, diligently producing a string of Union Jack bunting. It is believed to have been created by Banksy as a protest against the use of sweatshops for the manufacture of souvenirs commemorating the Queenâ€™s Diamond Jubilee and the then upcoming Summer Olympics in London. The crisis was brought to light in an article by Nicola Smith published in The Sunday Times describing a seven-year-old Indian boy who had been found working 98 hours a week in Delhi making cheap Christmas decorations for an exporter under contract to supply merchandise to the Poundland chain. One of the most publicized and poignant examples of Banksyâ€™s social commentary, Slave Labour helped bring international attention to the exploitation of youth.
