Kanye West Mural Painted Over After Artist Sold Print for $100,000 [PHOTO]
The saga behind the Kanye West mural has come to an end. Australian graffiti artist Scott Marsh has painted over his 20-foot “Kanye Loves Kanye” mural after he sold a print for $100,000 to an unknown buyer.
The 35-year-old artist went on his Instagram page and shared a photo of himself buffing over the artwork with paint. “Its been real yeezy [peace sign emoji],” he wrote in the caption.
In another photo, Marsh's online store reveals that someone purchased the buffed image of the Kanye mural for six figures.
In March, Marsh's "Kanye Loves Kanye" mural went viral on the internet and caused a stir on social media. Several weeks after it went up, Marsh claimed that someone from Yeezy's camp wanted him to paint over the wall art.
Looking to capitalize off his work, Marsh demanded $100,000 and a lifetime supply of Adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers if West wanted him to cover the painting. He didn't get his Yeezys, but he did get his payday.
It's unclear if West was the actual buyer of the print. But, for now, the only thing left of the painting is 'Ye's pinky finger.
