Whether he be declaring Bill Cosby is innocent, breaking up fist fights with hugs or begging Mark Zuckerberg to lend him a few thousand dollars, you can’t deny that Kanye West has elevated himself to that of a near omnipresent figure in our voyeuristic society. Is he a genius? A god? The next Picasso? One thing’s for sure though, nobody loves Kanye as much as Kanye, as Sydney artist Scott Marsh has so brilliantly pointed out.
CHances are if you’ve pottered around Sydney long enough you’ve seen some of Marsh’s work, including his portrait of The Notorious B.I.G at The Lord Gladstone Hotel and many other works comissionsed in the inner west. But his latest work of the biggest figure in hip-hop may have just taken the cake. The portrait of Yeezy making out with himself is based on an image that was Photoshopped and posted online a year ago.
Marsh’s mural can be found on Teggs Lane painted on the side of Zigi’s Wine and Cheese Bar.
First seen on Pitchfork.
