Hanksy Presents - Cage Against the Machine

New York based artist Hanksy pays a visit to Los Angeles and paints a new mural on Melrose entitled 'Cage Against the Machine'.

For those who don't know, Hanksy got their artist name by combining Banksy with Tom Hanks, and stenciling a rat with the actor's face around New York.  This mural combines Nicholas Cage with Rage Against the Machine, and the art shows Cage riding a machine like a horse.

The word play is clever, sure.  But the humor wears off quickly, and the end result feels like more of a joke than art.
