Kanye West's "Yeezus" Posters Graffitied By James Franco & Others
Mister Cartoon and a handful of other artists add their artwork to Kanye West's "Please Add Graffiti" promotional posters.
Actor James Franco and Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Mister Cartoon were just a handful of artists recruited by GQ magazine to add their own artwork to Windy City rapper Kanye West’s Yeezus posters.
Keeping with the minimalistic approach of West’s Yeezus cover art, various “Please Add Graffiti” posters were placed in a handful of major cities including New York City prior to the release of the album in the hopes that passerby’s would create their own artwork.
Along with Franco and Mister Cartoon, GQ also sent posters to ESPO, Curtis Kulig, and Wil Fry, who all added their own graffiti to the Yeezus posters.
Pictures of the re-worked posters created thanks to GQ’s project can be found below.
Released on June 18, Yeezus serves as Kanye West’s sixth studio album and was created with help from Mike Dean, Daft Punk, and a handful of other artists.
