35 Brilliant Pop Culture Art Puns from Hanksy

The artist known as Hansky must have a blast. Everything he creates, including his moniker, mocks the world of celebrity and art. Actors, musicians, athletes and politicians are combined with pop culture and rendered in his street art to result in that lowest rung of comedy, the pun. And like several puns, they’re so bad, they’re good.

When I first introduced you to the artist, it was a look at his very first show at Krause Gallery featuring the work upon which his name was based: a mash-up of Banksy’s street art with seemingly ubiquitous celebrity Tom Hanks.

Since that time, no one has been safe. Not Bill Murray, Bernie Sanders, Leonardo DiCaprio or Matt McConaughey. Not even Neil de Grasse. Hansky has been besmirching (albeit lovingly) everyone from rap artists to Disney stars with twists on their names, their characters and/ or popular movies. If you don’t get them, you’re not up on your movies, celebs and music. I cannot help but laugh aloud whenever I see them, so I thought you might just do the same.
