Kanye West Mural Artist Wants Rapper to Pay Him $100,000 to Paint Over Kissing Image
Remember that Kanye West mural that went viral on the Internet? While it may not be the most flattering art inspired by the rapper-producer, it certainly raised a lot of eyebrows. Well, Yeezy is not feeling the artwork and he wants it painted over.
According to 702 ABC Sydney, graffiti artist Scott Marsh, who created the "Kanye Loves Kanye" mural, was contacted by someone claiming to be from West’s management offering him "a large chunk of money" to paint over the wall. Apparently, Marsh didn’t like the offer and returned with a $100,000 counteroffer. Oh, and a lifetime supply of Yeezy Boost sneakers.
On Tuesday (March 29), Marsh also released a one-off print version of the "Kanye Loves Kanye" mural, which he altered to not show West kissing himself.
"I'm offering an oversized print which has been painted over for $100,000," Marsh told the Australian news website. "It's an open invitation to Kanye. If he buys that print, then I'll paint over the mural."
So far, West hasn't responded. However, we should mention that the Chicago rapper doesn't have an Instagram page (at least that we've know of), so Marsh's attempt for a payday might be futile.
What do you think? Should Scott Marsh paint over the "Kanye Loves Kanye" mural whether or not Kanye West pays him? Tell us in the comments below.
