It's probably safe to say that there aren't many bigger fans out there of Kanye West than the man himself. West has been pegged as a narcissist more than once in his career, and lately has had a lot of fun turning into that image. You don't name a song “I Love Kanye” on your latest album if you aren't at least a little bit self-aware. Anyway, Australian artist Scott Marsh lately had his own bit of fun with Kanye's penchant for self-aggrandizment and created a massive 20-foot tall mural of the Chicago rapper kissing himself.
It's unknown where exactly the mural is located at this time. Many seem to think it's somewhere “Down Under” around Sydney where Marsh calls home. This isn't actually the first time that Marsh has done up a mural of a rapper either. Earlier this month, the artist painted an equally massive portrait of the Notorious B.I.G. on the side of the Lord Gladstone Hotel to pay homage to his memory on the 19th anniversary of his passing.
So what do you think of the Kanye mural? High art or low brow caricature?
