The Street Art of Hanksy

Hanksy is BIG in New York!

If you’re wandering the streets of New York City, or happen to be visiting the Krause Gallery soon, you might see the graffiti art of Hanksy. Though his work appears to be a combination of Banksy parody and ridiculous pop culture puns, art historians like myself know these works will land in The Lourve soon enough. Napoleon in the Plague House at Jaffa, watch your back.
