As one of the most popular artists in the world in 2016, Kanye West is an outspoken proponent of artistry and recognizing great artists in the world. But over the past few weeks, the art world has seeming lashed back at Kanye as an embarrassing two-story Sydney, Australia mural snowballed into headlines worldwide.
The mural was a reworking of the now iconic image of Kanye kissing Kim K on the 2015 Grammy Awards red carpet.
In the mural Kim’s head was replaced with Kanye’s so that Kanye was kissing himself as the painter seemingly took a shot at Kanye’s said narcissistic personality.
Now a print of that painting has sold for $100,000 and the mural itself has been painted over.
It was previously reportedthat painter Scott Marsh wanted a lifetime supply of Yeezys and $100,0000 and it appears that he at least got $100,000.
No word on who purchased the painting, but the painter Scott Marsh let it be known via social media that he is now $100,000 richer.
“ If anyone needs me I’ll be at the #lordgladstone drinking from the topshelf…. #whatamonth #kanyeloveskanye #kanye #kanyewest #sold #scottmarsh @1xrun ”
