Banksy’s Very Little Helps began as a street art piece stenciled on the side of a pharmacy building along Essex Road in north London. Created in 2008, Banksy reproduced it the same year in a limited edition of 299 signed prints. The image in the print is reversed from its composition in the street art piece.
Very Little Helps is set on a sky-blue background and depicts three children surrounding a flagpole. One child raises a Tesco brand grocery plastic bag up the flagpole while the other two pledge their (consumer) allegiance. This witty and politically charged artwork is a satire on commercialism, which is a common theme throughout Banksy’s artwork.
