"Mob Wives" Star Angela "Big Ang" Raiola is a real piece of work -- the reality TV star's mug has been plastered all over NYC lately on giant mural scenes, but no one knew why ... until now.

TMZ has learned the the mob wife's been immortalized in caricature as part of a promotional campaign for BA's VH1 spin-off show called, you guessed it ... "Big Ang."

Sources close to the production of Ang's new show tell us, the network and a marketing firm hired real deal NYC street artists to design and paint the ginormous murals around the city purely to promote the summer series.

And here we thought it was art.

LOL she is so over the edge that I like her. Well, purely for entertainment purposes. Although I don't know how long my attention span will be. I mean the lips.....the boobs.......hey what the hell, if I had a chance to make some good money who's to say I wouldn't use a lil bottox.

Hey...Big Ang is cool. I didn't like her at all when she first started appearing on the show. For one...I didn't like those inflated lips and heavy accent but after seeing her more & more I've come to the conclusion she's the neatest of all of 'em. I think she'd be a hoot to hang out with.

I can't wait until her show comes on! I think she is SO FUNNY and sweet. I truly hope the show will be a HIT. One thing I don't get is why such a pretty lady would want such big lips.not cute at all.

This is one ugly, knifed up chick. You know the members of the mob have become big pauzzes when you let these types exposure you and your secret life. You definitely won't see any itches from the Bilderberg Group doing this fake reality crap. Well mainly because they're behind it!! Plus this could have also been set by the producers of this show and/or her. And yes, I'm a Wise azz Guy!
