Street artist Hanksy has managed to remain mysterious, even while hosting art show parties in abandoned tenements... and humble, even while getting shout outs from Stephen Colbert. Maybe that's because his Whole Thing is based on lighthearted puns, albeit ones that are backed up by immense talent, and delivered to us on the accessible canvas of New York City's streets. Below, meet a blurred-out Hanksy—who talks about why he does what he does—and his really cute dog.

Previously on No Your City: Meet Shaun, who operates a rickshaw in a Spider-Man costume, Te'Devan, the 6'7" Jew Who Will Rap For You, Don Ward the shoeshiner, and Matthew the pacifist clown.
