Batman and Legos

Awesome street art painting on a store-front roller shutter near the Landmark Sunshine Cinema on E. Houston St. in New York City. The artwork features images of comic-book and film superhero Batman and a cartoony character that looks like a mouse in bondage suit, a la the Gimp in Pulp Fiction. “Help?” calls out underneath. A close inspection of the work reveals that the artwork is composed of colorful photographic images of branded Lego bricks. An even closer look and the viewer can find specific references to iconic works of art by artist Jeff Koons and Norwegian painter Edvard Munch ( “The Scream“) — look carefully at the ears and eyes of the mousey gimp.
