I like this artist: Hanksy

"Hanksy" is an anonymous New York based  street artist who produces parodies of Banksy's iconic works mashed-up with pictures and references to actor Tom Hanks. Best idea ever? Best idea ever.
Apparently both Tom Hanks and Banksy are aware of and enjoy Hanksy's work, and the artist has recently branched out toward different actors and pop-culture references, but still keeping the glorious love of puns that inspired the original work.

Read an interview with Hanksy by EA Hanks, who happens to be Tom Hanks' daughter, here.
