No, Kim, not that spot! Thanks to one artist, the Kardashian family may find it harder to park around Hollywood these days. Plastic Jesus, the artist who recently made headlines for the cocaine-snorting Oscar statue on Hollywood Boulevard, has struck again, this time aiming his work at reality TV’s royal family.
Plastic Jesus placed “No Kardashian Parking” signs all around Hollywood, right next to the normal traffic signs in the area. There’s even one outside of the ladies’ famed Dash boutique.
He got the idea for the new installation after an unnamed member of the Kardashian family forced traffic to a standstill as a horde of photographers took pictures of the star shopping.

"The Kardashian family has become ingrained in our culture," the artist told The Hollywood Reporter. "We've allowed mainstream media to become so profit-driven, we are sacrificing genuine news stories to satiate our vapid celebrity obsessions."
Plastic Jesus is also behind the “Stop Making Stupid People Famous” campaign, which he insists is not meant to directly target the E! family.
“‘Stop Making Stupid People Famous' often gets blogged as a criticism of the Kardashians," he continued. "But that piece is also meant to criticize us as consumers. Without us, there would be no market for the Kardashians. We are equally, if not more so, to blame."
The Kardashians have yet to speak out about the signs.
