Plastic Jesus
The anonymous street artist known as Plastic Jesus embraces guerilla artmaking tactics: Throughout his career, he’s covertly placed “useless plastic boxes” on Best Buy shelves, mounted a “No Kardashian Parking Anytime” sign, and constructed a miniature wall around Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star in the lead-up to the 2016 election. Plastic Jesus’s provocative, irreverent practice spans painting, printmaking, sculpture, and installation. The U.K.-born, Los Angeles–based artist’s first career was as a photojournalist, but the narrowness of mainstream media coverage encouraged him to apply his visual storytelling skills to a more direct practice. He has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, and Washington, D.C.
