Somehow, it still manages to tip the scales of the internet, sending celebs into heated meltdowns and drawing opinion from just about every corner of the world. We’ve all seen every single inch of Kim Kardashian’s body … yet, when she gets it out, everyone still loses their shit. Which is what happened just a day before this year’s International Women’s Day, when the pop culture icon (like it or not folks) got it all out; save for a little Instagram-necessary self-censorship.
Famous females as diverse as Bette Midler and Miley Cyrus had their word; and reverberations were felt the globe over … at least as far as Melbourne, where our man Dean Sunshine (the city’s leading authority on street art) captured this beauty from art provocateur LUSH over the weekend. Whatever your take on the polarising Mrs Kanye West, the truth is that the reality TV deity is capable of causing waves that other public figures can only dream of. Indictment of our times? Maybe. Ruthless self-publicist at the top of her game? Definitely. Self-proclaimed ‘graffiti’s #1 asshole’, LUSH, knows the power of iconography, and his audacious selfie reproduction has had reviews as mixed as the original — showing that, in 2016, both street art and the female body still have the power to shock.
