Banksy Rare Original 2019 GDP Thrower Silkscreen
This work is from an edition of unknown size. Banksy's Thrower print is an evolution of one of his most well-known pieces of street art, Love Is In The Air (Flower Thrower).
The work depicts a man with a bandana over his face frozen in the act of throwing a bunch of flowers at an unseen target, and could be interpreted as conveying a message of pacifism, possibly 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. Referenced and reproduced multiple times, the "Flower Thrower" has become part of the canon of street art, becoming as instantly recognizable as Banksy's rats or monkeys.
