There’s a new piece of guerrilla art in Vancouver, and it makes up in penguin what it lacks in penis.
Taking the spot most recently the one day only home of the now infamous “Penis Satan” statue, a penguin wearing sunglasses and a bow tie now sits on the concrete pedestal at Clark and Grandview Highway.
While this more universally appealing imagery is perhaps less controversial than its enormous, red, devilish, and aroused predecessor, it is still art unsanctioned by the City of Vancouver.
Will the powers that be let the penguin stand? Will Vancouverites be as passionate about the penguin as they were the penis? We shall see…
UPDATE: As many people have noticed, the penguin bears an uncanny resemblance to the penguins from Earls restaurants in the 1980s.
