Lushsux, the Melbourne artist behind plenty of Kanye West and Taylor Swift murals, has unveiled his latest piece of work – Yeezy in a straitjacket.
The artist revealed the mural on social media today with the caption “Free Yeezy,” clearly referring to Kanye’s recent hospitalisation.
Kanye was hospitalised last week and is currently being treated for “temporary psychosis”. He’s still in hospital and isn’t expected to be released until Monday at the earliest.
He’s cancelled his entire US Saint Pablo tour which was due to go right up until the end of this year.
The location of this mural is unknown at this stage, but most of Lushsux’s artwork are painted in Melbourne. He also has a habit of updating his artwork along the way so we’ll have to wait and see if there are any more additions to this one.
Kanye’s been the subject of many of Lushsux’s pieces. He painted an R.I.P. Taylor Swift mural after the infamous leaked Famous phone call and later updated Tay Tay’s face to be Kanye’s instead. He’s also redone the Famous video on a wall.
