Art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Well, the latest giant penis mural definitely gives passerbys an eyeful!
Swedish artist, Carolina Falkholt, is becoming increasingly well-known, now with her second ginormous penis mural.
Her first one, a big, pink creation. Was was commissioned by local street art organisation The New Allen. The giant penis was intended as a complement to a nearby super-sized mural of a vagina on Pike Street.
“I usually paint giant vaginas, pussies and cunts,” Falkholt told The Guardian. “And since I had just finished one on the side of a five-story building, I felt like a dick was needed.” Falkholt says the space on Broome Street was a “perfect fit” for the penis painting. “To paraphrase Judith Bernstein, if a dick can go into a woman, it can go up on a wall,” she added.
However, a few days later, after complaints from locals, the pink masterpiece was painted over.
Now, it looks like Stockholm has it’s blue counterpart.
This time the five-storey-high turgid penis is bright blue and painted on the side of a building in Kungsholmen island, Stockholm, Sweden.
The translation of what Falkholt has entitled it is literally – “Fuck the World”.
Let’s see how long this one lasts. Hopefully, it’ll be up a lot longer than the first one. (Pun intended.) 😉
