A random gold statue of Kanye West showed up in the middle of Los Angeles earlier today getting a lot of attention from people on social media.
The statue showed a crowed Yeezus, and was created by … ironically an artist named Plastic Jesus.
According to The Hollywood Reporter:
The sculpture just got a rogue unveiling on the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue on Feb. 22. It casts West as Jesus during the crucifixion, with nails in his hands and a wreath around his head, but is updated with bling around the neck.
The sculpture is part of a series of free-standing pieces that Plastic Jesus has dropped in and around the Oscars. In 2015, he created a life-size Oscar statue snorting cocaine on all fours. His other works have included an Oscar statue with a heroin need in its arm — inspired by the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman — and a graffiti piece with Lance Armstrong cycling while attached to an IV bag.
It is reportedly titled “False Idol,” and inspired by the way he has been treated by the media.
