Kanye West Gets Immortalized With Gold Life-Size Crucifixion Sculpture In Hollywood

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Kanye West has been immortalized thanks to a new giant Jesus sculpture in Los Angeles by a street artist ironically known as Plastic Jesus.

The art was unveiled today (February 22), at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Ave and emphasizes a giant Kanye nailed to a gold cross, with nails in his hands, a wreath on his head, along with some bling around his neck.

The sculpture, which is called “False Idol,” is the latest in a series of wild art pieces Plastic Jesus has been putting up since 2015.

In 2015, Plastic Jesus made a life-size figure of the Oscar snorting cocaine on all fours, in addition to doing a controversial graffiti piece of Lance Armstrong cycling with an IV bag.

“He’s a genius at writing and producing but he’s not a God, and that’s where we put him. Until there’s an issue in his life or a hiccup in his career, then we crucify him,” Plastic Jesus told The Hollywood Reporter. “We’ve seen it before with people like Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan. The same people who put him into a God-like place are the same yapping at his heels for a piece of flesh when something happens.”
