Hanksy has been rather quiet on the streets of the Lower East Side lately. The high-profile west coast show at Gallery 1988 occupied much of the artist’s attention. As did the back alleys of OK Cupid. Anyway, the prolific “street fartist” and self-proclaimed King of Puns returned to the fold last night with a series of patriotic pasters. Bald eagles, if you will.

Hanksy hit some of his usual spots like Freeman Alley and the northeast corner of Kenmare and Mulberry.

Here are the locations and pop-culture icons immortalized:

Patrick Stewart East Broadway and Jefferson
Walter White at Orchard and Canal
Britney Spears at Mulberry and Kenmare
Larry David in Freeman Alley (torn away this morning)

Hanksy also tells us: “For all the city dwellers stuck in the concrete jungle this holiday, I’ll be giving away an original Larry David Bald Eagle on panel. It’ll be hidden somewhere in the Lower East Side and it’ll go down on Thursday. Swamp ass and all.” Learn more by following him on Instagram.
