"Throw up"  in addition to denoting the act of vomiting, it also combines the graffiti techniques of "tagging" and "bombing". It usually refers to the large round letters that occupy large surfaces and alter the existing environment aesthetically. They are two-dimensional and are easy to create and attract attention. They easily become the focus of the viewer's attention.

 

The birth of a different Venus, which is an amalgam of beauty and monstrosity, reflects the way we perceive beauty and ugliness. For some "Throw ups"  are seen as vandalism, ugly acts of destruction, whereas for others they are imposing and beautiful.
