Yeezus season is here once again, as a life sized golden statue of the artist posing as Jesus appeared on Hollywood Boulevard overnight.
L.A artist Plastic Jesus is responsible for the sculpture, titled ‘False Idol’. Chatting to the Hollywood Reporter about his installation, Plastic Jesus said Kanye was “a genius at writing and producing but he’s not a God, and that’s where we put him. Until there’s an issue in his life or a hiccup in his career, then we crucify him.
“By all means, treat and respect these people are artists, but don’t make them into gods—because we crucify our gods.”
