Critical Review

The image resonates strongly with images of campus and street riots from the 1960s. While the viewer cannot see the man’s face, he seems frustrated or angry given his aggressive stance and tense posture. The way in which the man is caught throwing the bouquet resembles the images of people throwing rocks or molotov cocktails during riots that were seen in newspapers.

Banksy’s artworks are often steeped in anti-establishment values and this image has been interpreted as the man bombing the establishment with flowers. As the flowers are rendered in colour, there is a hint of optimism within this artwork as it suggests there is hope for a peaceful resolution to conflict.
