Kanye West was seen out in public for the first time since his hospitalization as he attends an art exhibit in Los Angeles.

The rapper sported dyed blond hair and looked relaxed in the photo, which was posted to Instagram by artist Giovanni Bassan Thursday, December 8. “K s in da house,” Bassan captioned the pic, which showed the 39-year-old “Fade” musician sitting with hands clasped in front of him while appearing to be backstage at MOCA's Pacific Design Center.

As Us Weekly previously reported, West has been living separately from wife Kim Kardashian and their children North, 3, and Saint, 1, as he recuperates following his hospitalization. West spent more than a week in the hospital after a meltdown, suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and what his doctor, Michael Farzam, termed an episode of “temporary psychosis.”

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 36, and the children have been staying with her mother, Kris Jenner, since West left the hospital and began receiving outpatient care at another residence, a source said. “Kim has spent the last few days at Kris' house with the kids. The kids were there during Kanye's hospitalization and are very happy there,” the insider tells Us. “Kim really wants to protect the kids and will do everything she can to see that that happens.” The source adds: “Kanye has not seen the kids very much since he was released, and Kim does not think he should. She has no plans for them to all live together.”

West's health scare, which came after increasingly erratic behavior, has put serious pressure on his marriage to the E! star. Sources tell Us that Kardashian feels “trapped” in her marriage and is plotting to get out, although she cares for West and is relieved he’s feeling better. “It will take some time before she can do anything,” claims the friend, alleging that she’s trying to build a case for full custody of their kids, “but she doesn’t want to stay married.”
