Hanksy "Grows Up", Drops Moniker and Puns Starting With One-Night Chinatown Gallery Exhibition

After five years of pun-filled wheat pastes and murals, street artist Hanksy is dropping his moniker and using his given name Adam Lucas moving forward with original art of a less humorous tone. Starting with a 1-night exhibition at 151 Canal Street on November 8th, 2017 titled Some Grow Up, Others Grow Down, the name "Hanksy" will be retired.

‘Some Grow Up, Others Grow Down’ Nov 8th @ 151 Canal St NYC. New show, new art, new (actual) name.

The artist formerly known as "Hanksy" is perhaps most famous for his excellent Dump Trump mural back in 2015.
