A four-storey painting of a penis that piqued the curiosity of New Yorkers when it appeared on Christmas Eve was being painted over on Wednesday – by order of the building’s landlord.PS. With full-frontal honesty, I have to admit I tacked this onto the blog largely to give myself the opportunity to use a word I have always admired: "tallywacker." It just makes me smile.
The painting, on an apartment building on Broome Street in the Lower East Side, was commissioned by a local street art foundation and made by a Swedish artist, Carolina Falkholt, as a companion to a similarly vast if more abstract vagina, further east on Pike Street. [The Guardian]
