He’s hoping to get them Yeezy’s on his feet for the rest of his life.
After receiving international fame earlier this month, Australian artist Scott Marsh is looking to cash in on his recently painted mural of Kanye West smooching himself on the side of a Sydney building.
Initially offered a “pretty decent chunk of money” to paint over the mural by someone claiming to be part of the rapper’s management, Marsh is now seeking $100,000 and a lifetime supply of West’s famed Yeezy Boost sneakers if the rapper buys a print edition of the painting, ABC reports.
“I’m offering an oversized print which has been painted over for $100,000,” Marsh said to 702 ABC Sydney.
He’s given “The Life of Pablo” artist about two weeks to buy the print.
“It’s an open invitation to Kanye,” Marsh said. “If he buys that print, then I’ll paint over the mural.”
The mural, which covers the side of a building on Teggs Lane in Chippedale, Australia, shows a cloaked in black Kanye West laying a fat one on himself – while grabbing a handful of a shimmering Kanye in a sleek silver dress.
The painting’s inspiration comes from an internet meme that surfaced after the Grammy’s of West kissing his wife, Kim Kardashian, while grabbing her world-famous derriere on the red carpet.
Marsh told the Daily Mail that he’s a huge fan of West and hoped he’d like his artwork.
“This is the first piece of mine to receive a large amount of international attention,” Marsh explained. “I suppose if Kanye really loves Kanye as much as everyone says he does, Kanye on Kanye action would be right up his alley.”
While the City of Sydney Council hasn’t formally asked for the removal of the Kanye mural, it did order that a nude mural of Kardashian just meters away to be painted over after a neighbor complained, the Guardian reports.
The Kanye mural was not pre-approved by the city council.
“Whether you like or not, it’s art,” Marsh told ABC. “So some people like it, some people don’t. It’s all open to interpretation.
