The emotional hissy-fit over the Fearless Girl statue continues as one expects.
City sculptor Alex Gardega — seething over the “Fearless Girl” statue being placed across from Wall Street’s “Charging Bull” — has decided to retaliate with a work of his own.
Gardega created a statue of a small dog, titled “Pissing Pug,” and his sloppily crafted pooch takes direct aim at “Fearless Girl” — or, at least, at her left leg.
“This is corporate nonsense,” Gardega told The Post of “Fearless Girl,” saying it was put opposite artist Arturo Di Modica’s famed bull as a publicity stunt by a Boston-based financial firm.
“It has nothing to do with feminism, and it is disrespect to the artist that made the bull,” he said. “That bull had integrity.”
The Upper West Side artist sniffed that he even made his dog particularly poorly just to stick it to “Fearless Girl” even more.
“I decided to build this dog and make it crappy to downgrade the statue, exactly how the girl is a downgrade on the bull.”
Yeah right, buddy. Does anyone really believe he made it crappy deliberately? Does anyone believe he’s “pro-feminism” as he claims? Maybe he’s just creatively and intellectually limited? Because, let’s face it, a urinating dog screams middle school immaturity. Bet he even giggled and snickered as he created this piece. I’m surprised he didn’t sculpt a pile of doggie doo to go with his “art”.
What will his next project focus on? The Wonder Woman movie’s all women viewing?
When you have time to flip out over things like the Fearless Girl statue and the Wonder Women movie I’d say you’re probably living a pretty charmed life.
