Bucky Turco at ANIMALNewYork reports on a large US flag mural by “interventionist” Ron English that’s gone up on the Houston Bowery Wall (an outdoor exhibition space) in Manhattan. The stars feature star-eyed (or rather star-eye-socketed) skulls, and the stripes are reproductions of English’s Propaganda images of ad and currency parodies. The baby Hulk in the middle?
“The original idea is that he’s Baby America,” explains English. “He’s way more powerful than he is smart. And he’s about to be pissed off about something. It could be all the animals. It could be he’s not in the ads. We don’t know.”
Lots of great images, quotes, and a timelapse video at animalnewyork.com:
