Carolina Falkholt: Enormous penis pops up in NYC

Meet the newest member of the Lower East Side street-art scene.

A towering painting depicting a shockingly life-like penis went up on the side of 303 Broome St. on Christmas Eve.

Swedish street artist Carolina Falkholt stood up and took credit on Instagram for the veiny behemoth — which lacks testicles but no doubt took cajones to paint — and said it’s really getting a rise out of folks.


Qun Chen’s apartment has a view of the graphic painting.

“NO TIME 4 BALL$$ . . . I have never heard so much laughter and seen so many happy faces behind my back when painting as for today doing this wall on Broome Street,” the cocky artist wrote alongside a photo of the four-story masterpiece.

The depiction was a flop to some.

“It’s ugly,” said neighbor Qun Chen, 47, whose third-story apartment next door overlooks the painted pride. “There’s a lot of kids that live in this building and in the neighborhood — it’s not good for the kids, they’re little.”

But others weren’t so hard on it.

“It’s not offensive — it’s 2017,” said Felton Chen, 30, no relation to Qun. “It doesn’t bother me.”

An enterprising fitness trainer was even using it to pump up his business.

“Maybe they’re trying to bring consciousness, awareness,” said ConBody co-owner Sultan Malik, 36. “If you work out hard, your d— stays hard like that every day.”

The penetrating display is not Falkholt’s first foray into gigantic genitals — she sprayed a towering vulva onto a Swedish building in 2015, though the depiction was more abstract than the Lower East Side shvantz.
