While I haven’t yet been lucky enough to experience his current rendering of Governor Mario Cuomo as Superman (which, appropriate), I did get a bit giddy when I strolled past this rather large and impressive SacSix mural of Dr. Anthony Fauci re-imagined as Star Trek’s Mr. Spock. Perfectly logical.
The pop-culture infused likeness of Fauci includes fun Spock-ian embellishments such as the hand sign made famous by the Enterprise’s only Vulcan crew member (with a reminder to stay vigilant with personal hygiene), as well as the signature pointed ears.
Fauci Spock Mural was Photographed on St. Marks Place in NYC’s East Village.
Here’s a new artwork by street artist SacSix that you’re probably already seeing all over the city. Break Through depicts the instantly recognizable hand of Mickey Mouse making the Peace Sign, where his two fingers literally ‘break through’ the fabric of the white glove he wears. Pretty heavy. According to the artist, “2020 is the time to break through the white glove of racism and oppression. Time for Equality. Justice. Peace. RIP George.” This piece is a ‘sign of the times’ if there ever was one.
