Kanye West’s management has reportedly offered Australian artist Scott Marsh, a "chunk of money" to paint over a controversial street mural of the rapper passionately kissing himself, and will do it for US$100,000.
 
The 20-foot painting, completed earlier this month on a wall in Sydney’s Chippendale, is based on a photoshopped image of West – who has likened himself to God and Shakespeare – embracing his wife Kim Kardashian - on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards.
 
Marsh, posted an image of his creation alongside the hashtag "#kanyeloveskanye".
 
 
Now it seems the 38-year-old rapper was not too impressed with the imposing street art.
 
Marsh revealed he was contacted via email by a person claiming to be from the American hip hop artist’s management, who offered a "pretty decent chunk of money" to paint over the wall.
 
In return, Marsh requested a six-figure payment and a lifetime supply of West's signature brand of sneakers.
 
He has since released a print of the mural and has given West two weeks to buy one for $US100,000.
 
"I'm offering an oversized print which has been painted over for $US100,000," Marsh told Australia’s ABC Radio. "It's an open invitation to Kanye. If he buys that print then I'll paint over the mural."
