Make sure you’re ready for the return of Hanksy’s “Surplus Candy,” because it’s flying back into your screens next Wednesday, on the 19th. With the help of Squarespace, Hanksy sails the windy streets of Chicago in his never-ending voyage to expose street art across the country. Tune in to TheHundreds.com to see the rise of street art in this city. Also, be sure to check out Hanksy on his Instagram @hanksynyc and on his site www.hanksy.com.
“There’s a bunch of art getting painted on walls between New York City and LA and it’s my opinion that if a knucklehead artist like myself is randomly given some weird pseudo-serious spotlight, they use it for good not evil. The best thing I can do is show what’s up and what’s going down in the smaller markets of North America. Elevating others always beats out the dog-eat-dog.” – Hanksy
Internationally acclaimed – and anonymous – street artist Hanksy takes the viewer on an in-depth six-episode street art expedition in The Hundreds’ newest web series “Surplus Candy.” The series begins with an immersive look at Montreal’s budding scene, an introduction to a globe-trotting foray into other key hot-spots, including Detroit, Austin, Portland, and more.
