Artist of the moment……..Street Artist Plastic Jesus

Plastic  Jesus is a street artist based out of Los Angeles, California. The artist enjoys pushing political and social commentary in his art. For example in the gallery you may recognize former champion Lance Armstrong. Armstrong is shown attached to an IV drip. Remember Armstrong admitted to doping and would have blood transfusions in order to appear clean.

In this clip we view Plastic Jesus via time lapse photography:

He is very clever with words and one of my favorite works of his states “Stop making stupid people famous.”

For his charity work, Plastic Jesus is associated with Los Angeles Youth Network which helps runaway and homeless teens.

Price range information: From time to time you can buy T-shirts with funny slogans including STOP MAKING STUPID PEOPLE FAMOUS! for $25. Silkscreen prints of images like Lance Armstrong can be found between $100 and $300.
