Hanksy Pokes Fun at Mayor-Elect with ‘Buffalo Bill de Blasio’
Our Chinatown neighbors awoke this morning to a new Hanksy wheat-paste, which was a collaboration with artist Alex Pardee. This borderline NSFW is a mashup of Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio and the crazy Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs. It certainly put the lotion on its skin…
In a statement, the street artist noted that he wanted to be the first to “lamb-poon the mayor elect.” Also note the moth (“Death’s-Head Hawkmoth”) pendant on his neck – outgoing mayor Bloomberg.
The piece resides near Canal and Ludlow. Get to it while it’s still tag-free.
