Banksy - Flower Thrower (Love Is in the Air) - Screenprint - Triptych - 2019

The 2019 limited edition screenprint by Banksy Flower Thrower (Love Is in the Air) is a rare edition of one of the most iconic images of the street artist Banksy.

With Love is in the Air Banksy depicts a strong yet representative image from a riot: a masked man in the act of throwing something like a Molotov cocktail or even a grenade. Though in this case, these have been replaced by the artist with a flower bouquet inverting the sense of the scene into a message of peace.

Flower Thrower (Love Is in the Air) is hand-signed and numbered. It belongs to a limited edition of 300 pieces and measures 42.5x83 in (33x25.5 in, 42.5x30.7 in, 18.1x22 in each piece from left to right). The work is provided with a Pest Control authenticity certificate.

The artwork is provided with the original frame in which it was exhibited at Gross Domestic Product, the temporary “shop” opened by Banksy in Croydon, London in 2019.

Banksy Flower Bomber against war and violence

Also known as Banksy Flower Bomber, Banksy Rage, the Flower Thrower or LIITA (Love Is in the Air) the thrower is a perfect example of Banksy’s style and political commitment.

It sends a message of peace with the explosive power of a bomb, making Banksy’s art a manifesto against war and violence. The image reminds the street and campus riots of the 1960s, and anger and frustration stand out from the man’s posture as he tries to bomb the establishment with flowers.

The artwork is made with stencil technique, and it is in black and white except for the colored flowers.

The first graffiti of Banksy Thrower and the artworks in Palestine

The first appearance of the Banksy Thrower dates back to 2003, when the artist realized the same, large format graffiti in Bethlehem.

Banksy made several graffiti in Palestine to attract the world's attention to the construction of the Israeli West Bank Barrier, the 760km wall dividing Palestine from Israel. A wall, according to Banksy, which “essentially turns Palestine into the world’s largest open prison”.

In his book Wall & Piece (2005), Banksy explains that while he was painting the wall a resident told him how beautiful he had made it. Banksy thanked him, but the surprising, witty response of the man was just “We don’t want it to be beautiful, we hate this wall. Go home.”

Probably the most famous street artist still in activity, Banksy is known for his stencil style graffiti that criticize political authority, war, consumerism and the status of art.

His style features a subtle irony: Banksy makes us smile, facing at the same time critical issues of global society. Images like the Balloon Girl or Pulp Fiction have become icons of Street Art itself, and his installations like The Walled Off Hotel and Dismaland have introduced a new way of understanding art.

Banksy also made the documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop, earning an Oscar nomination. It tells the story of the street artist Mr. Brainwash.

Banksy’s urban interventions and studio works have been exhibited worldwide, and the market interest in his artworks experienced a huge growth in the last decade.
