Kanye West is a big fan of Kanye West.
He’s his own hype man, spokesperson and biggest cheerleader. So it wasn’t farfetched that Australian artist Scott Marsh flex some creative license and create a 20-foot-mural of The Life of Pablo artist kissing himself in Sydney. However it seems as if “someone” has paid Marsh a $100,000 to paint over the mural.
According to Gentlemen’s Quarterly Mr. West wasn’t a fan of the mural from the get-go and Marsh publicly asked for a large sum of money for a “buffed” print of the mural (along with a lifetime of Yeezy Boost) and said if he received it, he would paint over the mural.
This is a one of a kind original painted the day the mural went viral, its definately got some sentimental value & I will have a tough time letting go of it! For any serious enquiries firstname.lastname@example.org “Kanye loves Kanye” spray paint, acrylic and enamel on canvas 198cm x 133cm

Well according to Marsh “someone” from Kanye’s management team conducted the $100,000 transaction, which means we all must say sayonara to a 20-foot-tall image of Kanye West demonstrating how we should all feel about ourselves.
