James Gandolfini and the White Rider would be proud
Take a break from the Banksy media over-saturation with Hanksy…
With Banksy tearing through town this week for his outdoor gallery push, the wheatpaste pun-master is not to be forgotten. The street artist put up a number of pieces around the Lower East Side last night, including one that sorta lampoons the namesake inspiration. Our favorite, however, is “Gandalfini” which is a mashup of the late great Sopranos star James Gandolfini and the White Rider from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It’s located at the corner of Orchard and Grand Street. As Hanksy tells us, “one Bada Bing to rule them all.”
Another is around the corner at Hester and Ludlow, carrying with it some middle school double-entendre.
