Irate artist turns heads when he exacts revenge on ‘Fearless Girl’ statue with a unique sculpture of his own

It’s battle of the New York City artists — and they’re taking it to the streets.

Upper West Side sculpture Alex Gardega didn’t much appreciate the “Fearless Girl” statue that was erected across the famed Wall St. bull in March 2017.

“This is corporate nonsense,” Gardega told the New York Post of “Fearless Girl.”

“It has nothing to do with feminism, and it is disrespect to the artist that made the bull,” he said. “That bull had integrity.”

Much to-do erupted over “Fearless Girl’s” debut and CNN even became a laughing-stock when it touted the sculpture’s ability to stand up to the snow.

No doubt, Gardega would have had a laugh at that, as he now claims “Fearless Girl” was nothing more than a publicity stunt for a Boston-based financial firm, according the Post.

So, Gardega got busy sculpting revenge in the form of a peeing pooch.

“I decided to build this dog and make it crappy to downgrade the statue, exactly how the girl is a downgrade on the bull,” said Gardega of his haphazard work aptly named “Pissing Pug.”

And crappy it looks, as it is hard to even make out that the sculpture is a dog, at least from the photos.

The pug is perpetually in pee mode and when placed correctly takes aim at “Fearless Girl’s” leg.

As to be expected, feminists who’ve embraced “Fearless Girl” as a warrior against Wall Street and financial power houses, view the pug stunt as misogynistic.

“That’s an a–hole move. You call this art?” said one woman who kicked the dog statue as she walked by, the Post reported.

“Fearless Girl” is to stay put for 11 months after women’s groups pressured NYC’s Mayor de Blasio to keep the statue.

No telling how long “pissing pug” will last.

So far, the stunt isn’t gaining a lot of fans, but it is pulling in some serious snark:

“Fearless Girl” is a statue, of course it’s “persistant.”

It looks like the pissing pug may have missed the mark. If you really want to get back a ‘Fearless Girl’ this is how you do it:
