Fearless Girl Statue with Pissing Dog

The artist Alex Gardega installed Pissing Pug, alternatively known as Sketchy Dog, as an act of defiance against the Fearless Girl statue that was erected earlier this year next to the Charging Bull, installed in 1985.

Fearless Girl, designed by the artist Kristen Visbal, was intended to be a comment on gender inequality, appearing on the eve of International Women’s Day, but caused the bull’s sculptor, Arturo Di Modica, to claim his work had been hijacked and the meaning subverted.

Alex Gardega told the New York Post: “It has nothing to do with feminism, and it is disrespect to the artist that made the bull … That bull had integrity.”
