(After) Banksy (b. 1975) “Flower Thrower – Red”; (2020) Stencil StreetArt; Edition of 20; Stencil/Spray on Arches paper 360 g; Signature imprimee (stamped.)  Numbered (2/20), titled, and dated in pencil.  Measures 28 x 20 inches.

Probably one of the most well-known of Banksy's images, the classic 2003 Banksy work is often referred to as “Rage, The Flower Thrower”  or “Flower Bomber”. It is a painting of a man wearing a kerchief and baseball cap throwing a bouquet of flowers. The man and the flower wrapping are done in black and white; the flowers and the stems protruding from the wrapper are in color.  Banksy is pacifist and anti-war, so the image could have been inspired by the violent unrest in the middle east.

Banksy was born in 1974, in England. He is a graffiti artist from Bristol, who is famous for his artworks, widespread all over the world. Despite his success, nobody knows his real name, due to the artist’s will to carefully keep his real name from the mainstream media. He is known for his original technique, which allows to distinguish his artworks immediately. In particular, he uses a combination with a distinctive stencilling technique, in order to promote alternative aspects of politics.                                                                                                     There are different opinions about his work: someone believe that his works improve the quality of the urban environment where they are placed, giving a voice to the people who cannot express themselves; others think that his work is an example of vandalism or that his political beliefs (apparently left wing) are not shared by the majority of the inhabitants of the environments that he decorate. However, thanks to the secrecy around his real identity and his subversive character, Banksy has achieved somewhat of a cult following from some of the younger age group within the stencilling community.
