Banksy describes today’s art piece on his website as: “A fibreglass replica of Ronald McDonald having his shoes shined by a real live boy. The sculpture will visit the sidewalk outside a different McDonalds every lunchtime for the next week. Today: South Bronx.”

Art? Jeff Koons Does Lady Gaga Nude


Artist Jeff Koons has created a ‘sculpture’ of Lady Gaga that will appear on the cover of her new and third album, ARTPOP.

Somehow this is far less exciting than Andy Warhol’s association with the Velvet Underground, or his brilliant cover for the Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers. Koons is mentioned in Lady Gaga’s “Applause” (watch below if you must).

Koons previous sculpture of a pop figure is a horrendous depiction of Michael Jackson and Bubbles.
