Mr. Brainwash – Banksy Thrower

Mr. Brainwash, Banksy Thrower is an Original Mixed Media on Paper with Silkscreen, Stenciling, Acrylic Painting and Spray Painting. A one-of-a-kind original artwork featuring the Banksy “Thrower”, with Mr. Brainwash’s special signature on verso with dollar bill sequence and comes with official Mr. Brainwash certificate of authenticity.

This piece is after Banksy’s Flower Thrower or Flower Bomber piece, which is probably one of the most well known by the artist, featured heavily in his “Wall and Peace” book (2005). The image is seen in Jerusalem, preserved by a perspex overlay, but the location is a particularly prominent to the meaning of the picture: peace. In 2005 there was a gay parade in Jerusalem, which was attacked by protesters who stabbed three people and injured many more, this image could be a response to those events, or inspired by the violent unrest in the middle east, but we know that Banksy is a pacifist and anti-war, so the piece could have been inspired by a number of events. The black and white man is depicted as a rioter or protester, with a bandana and cap to hide his identity, but as well as this, the flowers are in colour, vivid, multi-colour, which could be taken as symbolic of the gay pride flag. The image is reminiscent of the images from the 1960’s campus and street riots, it’s obvious from the stance of the man, his facial expression and posture that there is a violent intent, however by exchanging a bomb, or rock or “molotov cocktail” with flowers, Banksy has created a strong message: wage peace. A message that has been captioned on the image of the Flower Thrower by millions of people on the internet, which originates from a Poem “Wage Peace” by Judyth Hill, written after the events of 9/11 in 2001.
