We at HuffPost Arts are fans of street art and Tom Hanks. If you combine both of these, you will get Hanksy, a New York-based graffiti artist who converts walls into hilarious tributes. Fans of Banksy, the British street artist, will get a kick out of the slideshow of appropriated images below, each curiously featuring Tom Hanks' benevolent visage.

As Banksy says on his website, "Stencils are good for two reasons; One -- they're quick; two -- they annoy idiots." So what do you think, readers? Is this a great spoof or what? See more images over at The L Magazine here.

"Hanksy" will run from January 13th - January 31st at Krause Gallery in New York.
