Some West-on-West action! Australian artist Scott Marsh painted a massive 20-foot mural of Kanye West making out with himself on the side of Zigi’s Wine and Cheese Bar in Sydney.
“No one can love Kanye quite like Kanye,” Marsh wrote in a Facebook post on Saturday, March 19. He also shared the image on his Instagram account and asked followers, "Who do you love as much as #Kanyeloveskanye ???"
The artwork is based on the viral Photoshopped meme of the Yeezy fashion designer kissing himself that circulated last year, which came from a real photo of West smooching his wife, Kim Kardashian. The reality star’s head was replaced with another version of West’s face but with the body still clad in Kardashian’s sequined dress.
The 38-year-old rapper’s controversial rants probably also inspired the mural of West’s self-love. The Life of Pablo rapper recently referred to himself as “the most important living artist” in a Twitter rant about the Grammys, and said he was “more influential than any other human being” in the leaked audio from his Saturday Night Live meltdown backstage in February.
Kardashian was also the subject of a giant mural lately in Cremorne, Australia, thanks to her naked selfie. The street art was quickly defaced with the word “slut" within hours of completion. “I instantly felt the need to paint it 30 feet high,” the artist Lush Sux, whose legal name is Mark Walls, told Us Weekly. “Perhaps I’m a little bit of an attention seeker, much like Kim.”
