Asheville street artist Gus Cutty was hard at work this morning putting the final touches on his newest design: A mural depicting Chick-fil-a executive Dan Cathy as actor and drag queen Divine. The mural is on the side wall of Forever Tattoo on Lexington Avenue.
Cathy caused a stir in recent weeks when he reaffirmed his stance against gay marriage, which prompted his fans and supporters to hold an eat-at-Chick-fil-a day last week. The eat-in snarled traffic all over Asheville with people waiting in line to get their hands on the chicken. Even Rev. Billy Graham of Montreat ate some chicken in support.
Monday morning, Cutty said he can’t wait for reaction. He’s also got an art opening set for Wednesday at the DeSoto Lounge in West Asheville, where you can see more of his work..
