"Kanye Loves Kanye" Artist To Take Down Mural For $100,000
The artist who created the "Kanye Loves Kanye" mural says he will take the piece of art down for a price.
Australian artist Scott Marsh is requesting $100,000 and a lifetime supply of Yeezys to take down his "Kanye Loves Kanye" mural. The mural, which can be found in Sydney, Australia, shows rapper Kanye West passionately kissing another Kanye West.
While speaking with 702 ABC in Sydney, Marsh revealed that someone who claimed to be from Kanye's management team, offered him a "pretty decent chunk of money" to paint over the lofty mural.
The artist revealed that he'll paint over the mural if the Chicago rapper buys an oversized print of the mural for $100,000. Marsh reportedly requested a lifetime supply of Yeezy Boosts, as well.
"I'm offering an oversized print which has been painted over for $US100,000," Scott Marsh said. "It's an open invitation to Kanye. If he buys that print then I'll paint over the mural...Me, personally, I love graffiti, I love it all. The thing I like about it is that it's unsanctioned. It's probably one of the last pieces of free media and I think that's the whole point of it. Whether you like it or not, it's art. So some people like it, some people don't. It's all open to interpretation."
