‘RIP Taylor Swift’ Mural Painted In Australia, Vandalized
A mural titled “RIP Taylor Swift” was painted in Melbourne, Australia, by graffiti artist Lushsux.
RIP Taylor Swift
Lushsux, entertained by the ongoing drama involving Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, used it for her latest mural. Inspired by the latest development – Kardashian leaking videos of Swift talking to West through Snapchat – she brought her paint to Hosier Lane in Melbourne and got to work. The mural serves as a memorial, featuring Swift’s likeness and the words, “In Loving Memory of… Taylor Swift 1989-2016.”
Lushsux promoted her art on Instagram writing, “The recent passing of @taylorswift is heart wrenching. Come and leave some flowers and light some candles at her memorial in Hosier lane in honour of her memory. If you do please DM photos of you doing it.”
The artist also shared a video, captioning it, “Please pay your respects at Hosier Lane today by laying flowers or lighting a candle in mourning, taken from us too soon sweet princess.”
“It’s just taking the piss, I think the City of Melbourne won’t be the problem it will be some ice head graffiti goon that will ruin the fun, touch wood it lasts a little bit so people can come have their fun with it and pay respects to our fallen sweet princess Tay,” Lushsux told Mashable.
Unfortunately, Lushsux was correct about fellow graffiti artists vandalizing her work. She’s been taking to Instagram to ask them to stop distorting her mural.
