Hanksy is taking the “Dump Trump” protest mantra a step further tomorrow with a one-day-only pop-up shop on Ludlow Street. The polarizing street artist is teaming up with a brigade of canines to produce some artwork of the fecal variety.

The tongue-in-cheek press release explains the art available at the temporary shop. With all the hallmarks of gallery babble…

On hand will be original collaborations between Hanksy and 10 other members of the Manhattan canine community. Sourcing materials from the blocks immediately surrounding Trump Fifth Avenue, Hanksy has produced painting materials from various piles of actual dog poop. The smelly samplings resulted in a series of 20 unique poop-portraits, all completed with paper, a brush, and puppy excrement.

Other Hanksy merch includes posters, coffee mugs, flags, yard signs, various buttons, and stickers, protest-worn jumpsuits. No toupees, though. Protest items are limited in numbers and priced to sell. The store is located at 151 Ludlow Street, and open for one day only.
