Banksy's Thrower (Grey) triptych, inspired by his Love Is In The Air pieces, was issued in 2019. It features a man with a balaclava poised to throw a bomb but holding flowers instead. The signed edition of 300 on 1500 micron board is split into three panels.
Thrower print represents an evolution of one of his most famous pieces of street art entitled Love Is In The Air (Flower Thrower). The work shows a man with a bandana over his face frozen in the act of throwing not a brick or a molotov cocktail, but a bunch of flowers at an unseen target, and could be read as conveying a message of pacifism, perhaps referencing a photograph by Bernie Boston entitled Flower Power in which a Vietnam War protester is shown inserting a flower into the barrel of a soldier’s gun.
With its classical stencilled style the work harks back to Banksy’s origins as a street artist, the stencil representing the quickest way for the artist to insert his image into the urban environment whilst surrounded by CCTV and the eyes of the police. Referenced and reproduced multiple times, the flower thrower has become part of the canon of street art, becoming as instantly recognisable as Banksy’s rats or monkeys.
