Recap: Hanksy’s “Young Puns” at Krause Gallery

Posted on: November 9th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

The weeklong postponement didn’t seem to stifle the crowds at the Krause Gallery last night for Hanksy’s latest show, “Young Puns 2: Now with More Pun.” A rather hip set of gallery goers packed into the cubbyhole showroom at 149 Orchard Street to scope the street art. What they got was a well-picked greatest hits collection from the last year or so of output.

Hanksy plastered his humorous mashups onto large plywood boards (and car doors); familiar amalgams like Pie Hard, Vanny Devito, the Ice Ice Baby, and Ted Dancin. Meanwhile, the artist was also accepting Hurricane Sandy relief donations in exchange for Ferrel Cat stickers.

And remember, there are still a few days remaining (until November 11) in our Hanksy sticker scavenger hunt, so spend the weekend playing!
