Remember the controversial ‘Famous’ video by Kanye West? Well there’s a life-size sculpture and it’s apparently not for sale, not even for $4 million.
The $4 million figure was the rumored cost for the masterpiece but now, a representative from Kanye West’s team has debunked those rumors.
The representative explained that the figure of celebrities including Kanye West, Amber Rose, Taylor Swift,Ray J and even Presidential hopeful Donald Trump are strictly art.
“We are incredibly flattered that a number is being reported but at no point have we ever disclosed a sale price for the piece” the rep said. “Once again we are flattered by such interest, but as far as Mr West is concerned, its all about the art. We are looking forward to announcing when Famous (the art piece) will be available again for viewing.”
‘Famous’ sculpture going on tour
The sculpture is a life-size silicon reproduction of the famous video. The video featured a string of naked celebrities lying asleep and side by side in bed. The sculptures are even animated to breathe. Among those included are George W.Bush, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Rihanna and Chris Brown. Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby also appear.
The sculpture was on exhibition at a Los Angeles Gallery, and lasted only one weekend. Kanye himself made an appearance for a few minutes albeit via satellite on a screen and not in person. However, Yeezy’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, did attend the exhibition’s opening day. It is also reported that the ‘Famous’ sculpture will be going on tour.
