• Flower thrower

    The work of art that I choose is « The flower thrower », which was made by Bansky in 2003, in Jerusalem. It’s perhaps one of the most famous pieces produced by Banksy. The piece was painted with a stencil and cans of spray paint. « The flower thrower » is a young man, maybe a teenager. We are not sure about his age because he wears a scarf covering most of his face. He also wears a backwards cap, and looks like a delinquent. The young man is holding a bunch of flowers, ready to throw it. He takes a run-up, to throw the flowers as far as he can. The whole piece is painted in black and white color, except the bunch of flowers. In this way,the bunch of flowers is plain to see. The artist doesn’t want weapons and violence in our lives. The teenager is holding flowers instead of a bomb. Moreover, the fact that the artist drew the artwork in Palestine, who was in conflict with  Israel, his message made even more sense. He expects a peaceful world. And he tried to pass the message of peace through the street art to as many people as possible.
