Plastic Jesus is a Los Angeles based street artist that specialises in bold stencil and installation work, inspired by world news events, society, the urban environment, culture and politics. His work combines humor, irony, criticism and unique opinion to create art that engages on many levels.
The Huffington Post listed two works by Plastic Jesus in the end of year round up of “The Best of Los Angeles Street art 2012”.
EPIC STREET ART FROM PLASTIC JESUS, THE ‘BANKSY OF LA’ - Lost a E minor
In early 2013 his piece “No more heroes” featuring disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong connected to an IV drip caught the world’s attention and was featured by many media organisations including CNN, The BBC, The Daily Mail, Huffington Post and LA Weekly. Many other pieces have gone viral on the internet and gained extensive news media coverage including his August 2013 “Best Buys Useless Plastic Box 1.2″.
His 2014 piece “Hollywood’s best kept secret” showing a 6 foot gold Oscar statue injecting with heroin brought controversy and focus to the hidden use of hard drugs in Hollywood and was featured on TMZ, Entertainment Tonight and ABC News.
Following the tragic death of actor Robin Williams, Plastic Jesus' tribute was one of the most shared pieces of LA street art during 2014. The following year he created further controversy with his 'coked out Oscar' sculpture.
Influential street art blog ‘Melrose & fairfax’ described Plastic Jesus as “The Banksy of LA”.
Plastic Jesus is not about revolution, he is not a complete anarchist but would like to see some changes around the place. His work is more about shining a small light into some of those dark corners of society.
His work has been featured by The BBC, CNN, abc News, Huffington Post, Gizmodo, Buzzfeed, The Sun, The Daily Mirror, LA Times, LA Weekly, The Daily Mail, MSNBC, The Daily Telegraph, Complex art and Design and many more.
Plastic Jesus tries to work as ethically as possible and minimise harm to the environment. His street art is only left in place for a limited time and then removed. Any damage to the urban environment is avoided and limited as far as possible.
If you find a piece of Plastic Jesus art on your building and you don’t want it there please email Plastic Jesus and one of the removal team will be there to remove it and make good.
