Tom Hanks’ Daughter Interviews Parody Street Artist Hanksy


Hanksy, the street artist who creates Tom Hanks-themed parodies of Banksy street art, was recently interviewed by EA Hanks of The Awl who happens to be Tom Hanks’ daughter. We’ve written previously about Hanksy’s work.

EA: Regarding your work, Tom Hanks sends the message, “I don’t know who Hanksy is, but I enjoy his (her?) comments via the semi-chaos of artistic expression.” Do you know if Banksy knows as well?

Hanksy: There has been word, from mouths that have some credentials to back it up, that he has seen the work, is following it, and completely encourages it.
