Zombie Oscars // D*Face

March 11, 2010

British street artist D*Face pays his own tribute to the Oscars by installing two large-sized Oscar statues in the Los Angeles area; at Mels Drive-In (above) and Runyon Canyon. With their flesh and bones exposed, the statues come with an engraving which states that “Beauty Is Skin Deep.”

“The Oscar ceremony represent the pinnacle of superficiality within the so-called “film industry,” where formula and money triumphs over independent creativity and risk. These sculptures are donated to all the actors, actresses and filmmakers of the City of Lost Angels whose talents will never see the light of day.

Never give up the struggle, believe in your dreams, try and break the system and remember if all else fails, resort to plastic surgery – it seems to work!?!” (D*Face)

Turn to page 2 for more images, plus the Runyon Canyon statue… they remind me of the Terminator!
