Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s Baby Sculpture Created by Artist Daniel Edwards
If you thought Kanye West naming his upcoming album ‘Yeezus’ was strange, check this out. Controversial artist Daniel Edwards has created a sculpture of West and Kim Kardashian‘s fetus and called it “Special K.” Holy Yeezus!
The bronze sculpture (see photo above) is bizarre in our humble opinion. It’s in the shape of a sleeping fetus in some sort of praying position. There’s a halo over the baby’s head and the emblem of the cereal Special K etched on the side of its head.
This statue will probably offend KimYe, who are expecting their first child in a couple of months.
Now the sculpture is not for sale. However, a wall print of the sculpture was supposed to be auctioned off at the Venice Art Walk event in Venice, Calif., last week. However, no one was interested in buying it.
According to the New York Post, the KimYe fetal portrait didn’t sell because Edwards didn’t sign it.
Apparently, the artist missed his flight to San Francisco and never made it to the event. Organizers are going to hold onto the print until he can autograph it.
The real question here is: why would anyone want a print of a KimYe fetus hanging on their wall? Egads! It would certainly would be a conversation piece.
Daniel Edwards is quite the controversial figure in the art world. The artist has carved a name for himself for his unusual sculptures of pop icons.
Two years ago, he created a Jay-Z bust that compared him to money-grubbing cartoon characters Scrooge McDuck, Richie Rich and Ed Burns of ‘The Simpsons.’ Some of his past controversial statues were a replica of Justin Bieber‘s private parts and a topless bust of the late Amy Winehouse.
