"No Kardashian Parking" Signs Pop-Up in Los Angeles

Imagine a world where famous for nothing people get banned from parking in all sorts of places. That wouldn’t be politically correct now, would it? Of course, we’re not saying turned-over-night celebrities should get special restrictions, but there is one street artist that believes his signs could change people’s mentality.

Believed to be an American Bansky, Plastic Jesus is a Los Angeles based street artist who, according to his website, specializes in bold stencil and installation work. His projects take inspiration from world news events, society, the urban environment, culture and politics.

His most recent work didn’t take a lot of time to become viral since it involves mocking one of the most popular characters in showbiz, the Kardashian family.

Apparently, one of the signs that ban Kardashians from parking their car there was installed in front of Dash, which is one of the family’s stores. It might look like a direct attack towards the reality television celebrities, but according to the artist the message is not for them.

The Kardashian family has become ingrained in our culture. We’ve allowed mainstream media to become so profit-driven, we are sacrificing genuine news stories to satiate our vapid celebrity obsessions,” Plastic Jesus told the Hollywood Reporter.

The idea struck him when he witnessed a typical paparazzi chase that happened as one of the Kardashian sisters walked out, and he couldn’t help but wonder “how has this become a news event?”

Similar to what Bansky is renown for back in the UK, Plastic Jesus too likes to make this world a better place through his art. The artists uses scale and contradiction as a means to highlight issues and opinions that often go unquestioned. Some of the artist’s most recent works are a cocaine-snorting Oscar he placed on Hollywood Boulevard and the “Stop Making Stupid People Famous” campaign.

Since the parking signs will most likely be taken down soon, we figured they were worth mentioning. What do you guys think of Plastic Jesus’ idea, is it really our fault or the television networks’.
