Kamala Harris As Fearless Girl By SacSix

Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris is the latest public figure to be transformed into street art by artist Sacsix, who recently did a fantastic job on Dr. Fauci. In his latest iteration, SacSix channels Harris’s inner Fearless Girl for a winning mash up. This paste-up is only few inches tall, so I had to really get down there to get the shot. Worth it. Good luck to Joe and Kamala in this race for our lives and our country’s future. I will be Voting Blue in November!

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.

Breakthrough By SacSix

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.

Sidewalks and Icons: Amy Winehouse By SacSix

SacSix is a Miami born artist now living in NYC. His #SidewalksAndIcons street art series explores pop culture icons, past and present, and their relationship with the streets of New York. This image of the late Amy Winehouse as an enhaloed Statue of Liberty was spotted on a boiler truck parked on Avenue B, across the street from Tompkins Square Park. Get a detailed look at the piece in the photo below.

Kanye West As Saint Sebastian

Kanye West is a person who embodies everything that is pathetic and sad about pop culture. The fact that he is married to a Kardashian sister and worships Dump makes him even more repugnant to me.  I don’t really see how he has fans, but there is no accounting for taste. This mural by street artist SacSix  (part of his #sidewalksandicons series) portrays West as Saint Sebastian. More importantly, it is a take on the famous cover of Esquire magazine from April, 1968 that portrayed prizefighter Muhammad Ali as the famous martyr, which makes it even more polarizing. The mural is excellent, but Kanye is a pathetic loser whose only talent is for shameless self promotion. Yawn City. Please stop making this man famous.

Donald Trump is Street Art Part 5: Trump as Nelson from The Simpsons

This addition to SacSix’s #sidewalksandicons series, which combines Dump’s ugly face with the body of Nelson from The Simpsons, is too perfect, because Dump is a fucking Bully.

Jerry Seinfeld is Street Art!

What I like about this wheat-paste — by Brooklyn Street Artist SacSix — is that it’s actually a clever mash-up of the famous Bob Gruen photo of John Lennon in his New York City T-Shirt, with the head of comedian Jerry Seinfeld. The pigeon on Jerry/John’s shoulder utters a catch phrase from a memorable episode of Sienfeld, which makes this a quintessentially NYC bit of ephemera.
