Batman and Superman - Gay kiss - Red cape
On street walls in London and New York, Superman grabs Batman’s sky blue mask, and they share a passionate kiss between their capes. The London-based contemporary urban pop artist behind the street art, Rich Simmons, tells that he has conceived of this composition because he wanted to spark a conversation about equality “by taking the two most alpha male superheroes and placing them in this embrace.”
Simmons, who has exhibited artwork in London, Geneva, Tampa, New York and Los Angeles, says that his artworks also intend to challenge the notion of heroism. “It is sometimes more heroic to simply stand up for your beliefs, stand up for equality,” he says.
“If you were in need of being saved from something, would it matter if the person who could be your hero was gay or not?” Simmons asks.
