Hanksy Exhibit Coming Soon to Krause Gallery on Orchard

Posted on: December 9th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

For the better part of the last year, Hanksy has made a ginormous splash mashing Banksy artworks with the mug of Tom Hanks. The most recent being the “Peeing Dog” vs A League of Their Own paster spotted the other day on Mulberry Street. With such momentum in tow, the upstart street artist is heading indoors for the well-coined crowd. Into the gallery setting.
