Forget underground graffiti artist Banksy, here comes Hanksy. Hanksy satirizes Tom Hanks into cult favorite Banksy art.
I’ve come across comments or stories written about Hanksy saying I’m directly ripping off Banksy’s style. Like, “Where does this guy get off, stealing Banksy’s work?” They are completely missing the point. It’s a satire. My goal was never to make a profit. It came about and there was a genuine excitement around the people at the gallery and the community in general.
