Artist Behind Kanye West Mural Demands $100K And Lifetime Supply Of Yeezys

Scott Marsh, the artist behind the “Kanye Loves Kanye” mural in Australia, has some demands if he’s going to remove his work.

The mural, which went up on March 19 in Sydney, is based on a photo of West and wife Kim Kardashian West kissing on the 2015 Grammy Awards red carpet. West also has a song “I Love Kanye” which he debuted on his album “The Life of Pablo.” He took to Twitter to tweet the entire set of lyrics to the song on Wednesday.

According to an ABC Sydney report, someone from West’s management contacted Marsh shortly after the mural went up asking him to remove it for a “pretty decent chunk of money.”

The report also says that Marsh countered by asking for $100,000 and a lifetime supply of Yeezy Boost sneakers. The $100,000 would come from West purchasing a one-off print that Marsh has created and is selling via online art store 1xRun.

The mural is next to one depicting Kardashian West’s infamous nude phone selfie painted by artist Lush.

“It’s an open invitation to Kanye,” Marsh told ABC Sydney. “If he buys that print, then I’ll paint over the mural.” 

Marsh also added that the work “has become a glowing example of the power of social media, the Internet and modern cult of celebrity.”

West has not offered a public response to Marsh’s request.
