Hanksy Has Been Busy In Chicago

Chicagoist received an email from New York City-based "street fartist" Hanksy this afternoon catching us up on his most recent visit to our city.

Hanksy shared new artwork featuring Samuel L. Jackson's head as a ham, Gerard Butler with ass cheeks for a forehead and new prints of old artwork like his "Ferrell cats" and "Stark and Recreation."

"I love Chicago but end up eating way too much Lou Malnati's and Hot Doug's," Hanksy said.

While in Chicago, Hanksy also gifted a couple getting married with this.

Hanksy, who loves to traffic in puns with his artwork, frequently comes to Chicago to install new street art and updated versions of classic work. He was in Los Angeles in March promoting a May show and reflected on his "silly" art last December.
