Hanksy’s Bi-Curious George Visits the Lower East Side
The Man with the Yellow Hat brought Curious George to the Lower East Side this past weekend for another adventure. Bridge and tunnel. This time, the troublesome monkey found himself glued indefinitely to the Hester Street facade of the Kwok Won Laundromat, but with a mug not his own.
That’s right, kids. Hanksy pasted another of his cheeky street art mashups at 48 Hester Street. It portrays a Clooney-faced “Bi-curious George” monkey grasping the phallic fruit. We stumbled upon this latest piece Sunday morning, but it would barely last the day. Indeed, by late afternoon, somebody had already scraped away a large chunk of the racy image, including the token banana-dick.
When pressed for comment, the Man with the Yellow Hat responded by coyly stating that he loved George Clooney in From Dusk Till Dawn.
