This iconic stencil illustration continues to stand out among all of the Bristol artist's work. The subject, who appears to be involved in a riot, wears a handkerchief and backwards cap and is depicted armed with a bouquet of flowers instead of a Molotov cocktail. The complete work is done in black and white, except the flowers, which are in color. The work has been reproduced in the form of prints, phone cases, T-shirts, and even tattoos. Banksy leads us to believe the subject has armed himself for a riot or a war. The substitute of the flowers for a weapon portrays peace and hope in place of destruction. The work appears on the front and back cover of Banksy Wall and Piece, the widely popular 2005 compilation book featuring the artist's work.
Despite not calling himself an artist, Banksy has been considered by some as talented in that respect; he uses his original street art form, combined with Banksy stencil style. Due to the shroud of secrecy surrounding his real identity and his subversive character, Banksy has achieved somewhat of a cult following with his street art from some of the younger age group within the stenciling community. Tagging walls and billboards in the dark of night, sneaking around with a secret identity in urban areas. Leaving his political mark on the world for all to enjoy for free.
The infamous UK guerrilla artist, Banksy, is hitting the streets hard in London, Bristol, Australia, the USA, and just about everywhere in between. Itís not only the curiosity of his identity that makes the artist famous, itís his impeccable political pieces and artwork that stir up discussions on the underlying themes. By calling attention to the issues depicted in his pieces, Banksyís controversial work requires people to think deeply about the issues heís attempting to bring to light.
