One has to wonder what world-renowned street artist Banksy thinks of his imposter, Hanksy. Does Banksy despise Hanksy for riding on his coattails or does he admire him for being clever and creative? Perhaps, we'll never know.
Either way, Hansky has been putting up a flurry of awesome new works over the last couple years. Whether you love him or hate him, you have to admit, some of these…
Just a couple days ago, we featured some new work by the world's most famous street artist, Banksy. Turns out, he actually went on a tear and put up a few more pieces in London.

According to Demotix, it was created "as a show of… Continue
The ever-elusive Banksy impersonator, Hanksy, makes his mark again in the Lower East Side.

Bansky impersonator - Hanksy - has struck again! This time, instead of throwing flowers like in Banksy's Molotov cocktail-inspired original (below), the artist took it one step further and had Tom Hanks throw Wilson as a throwback to his movie Cast Away. The piece was spotted in New York… Continue
