He? The street artist isn't a he.

It was pink, obviously it was intended to raise awareness of and funds for breast cancer research.

Then why does he have a penis?

Was it solicited?

I'm all for public art (and pubic art) but I can understand the complaints on this one.  That's a pretty dang photorealistic penis.  Perhaps something more abstract like her vagina from another building would've gone over smoother.

You should see the rest of her art work. She's like a female H. R. Giger.

I like it!

"And the dialogue created around feminist public art pieces raises awareness."

Lady, it's a dick pic. Guys catch a lot of sh*t for sharing those and here you go plastering one all over the side of a six story apartment building.

I like it. It's in a similar vein of work as O'Keefe.

If nothing else it's a good landmark, like say you're ordering a pizza.  "It's the penis building, you can't miss it."  Or "make a left at the penis."  Or, "If you see the penis, you've gone too far".

Beautiful.

Lol

She did paint a rather fanciful version of a vagina on another building. It... it has eyes.
 
2017-12-28 11:50:09 AM  
The building wasn't tall enough for a black penis....

That's what she said!

If you live in Brussels, you just shrug (NSFW links):

Here's a wall painting.

Here's another one.

And another one.

And yet another one.

This one's actually funny.

These were shown uncensored in the news programs on national TV, with the reporter on the street asking people their opinions about the paintings.

The second sentence in the article subby submitted talks about the landlord painting over it.

> Talking about these subjects in public space is a must for a healthy, nonviolent community/world.
Maybe if you want to be taken seriously you should stop painting giant penises on things.

Ah, ok. I DRTA, since I saw the story a couple of days ago in a different article.

Nothing says "bringing attention to sexual violence and oppression" like a giant penis plastered on the side of a building...kudos.

It did, in Sweden:

Yeah, that bothered me. 'Oh, women are being raped and abused, but luckily, I've found a solution. It's to draw giant erect dicks on the sides of buildings. Nothing stops all that rape and oppression like giant penis pictures. Soooo weird that it works that way, but it totally does.'

Get real lady, you have a thing where you like to draw giant genitals on buildings. It's a personal thing for you. It's not fixing poverty or global warming or sexual violence against women. It's what you like to do. I mean, that's fine, many people like to draw doodles of dicks and what not, but don't pretend like you have some high brow purpose that makes your giant dicks intellectually different from teenage boys scrawling stuff on bathroom walls. You put more time and effort into it, that's the difference. Don't try to give me some crap about your dick pics helping sexual violence or some nonsense.

Well, it's a disembodied schlong. So perhaps it's a reactionary, cautionary tale?

Considering the fourth one, maybe this Swedish artist thought it would have had more of a sexual connotation from its portrayal with the foreskin retracted. A European audience might have gotten that, but fewer people would in the USA.
