The Boy with a Teddy Artwork was painted in London, England as a depiction of innocence being taken away at the fault of crime. The boy is painted wearing overly baggy clothing and a rifle gold chain while holding onto his teddy bear in one hand. Using the teddy bear as a metaphor of the little boy clinging onto his innocence. It is believed Banksy is commenting on the increase of child involvement in gang culture.
