(AllHipHop News) Do not let the pricey new Barneys collection fool you, Jay Z cares and one artist wanted to manifest that in a sculpture. In support of Jay Z’s decision to stay with Barneys amidst controversy, sculptor Daniel Edwards crafted a statue of Jay Z surrounded and sprouting from Care Bears.
The sculpture, entitled “Jay Z Shares and Cares” and was revealed earlier today (November 22nd), a few days after Jay Z’s November 20th launch of his Barneys collection
Edwards reasons in a press release for the sculpture that Jay Z’s profession, paired with the philanthropy of donating proceeds to his charity, make his continued loyalty to Barneys impressive:
Jay Z is an entertainer, not a civil rights activist. He defended future college funds by standing up to the criticism
Daniels has a history of creating provocative art and earlier this year created a sculpture of Kim Kardashian’s naked pregnant body entitled “L.A. Fertility”. Spectators were encouraged to rub the sculpture’s pregnant belly for good luck.
