Donald Trump’s words became Donald Trump art in Hollywood Tuesday when a local artist built a wall around the presidential candidate’s Walk of Fame star.
L.A. street artist “Plastic Jesus,” erected the six-inch, four-sided structure – made with wooden planks, laced with mini barbed wire, and “Keep Out” signs – Tuesday afternoon.
The artist posted about the display on his Instagram account.

Hollywood sight-seers on the famous walk of fame were confronted with an unusual addition to Trump’s Famous Star. Someone had built a 6" tall grey concrete wall around it. Complete with "Keep out" signs and topped with razor wire. The unofficial addtion to the iconic star appeared early Tuesday afternoon, to the amusement of onlookers. #Hollywood #donaldtrump #melaniatrump #hollywoodwalkoffame #wall #trump #election #election2016 #rnc #gop #gopconvention #rnc2016 #nevertrump #cleveland #tedcruz #hillaryclinton #hillary #berniesanders #feelthebern
“Jesus” told the New York Daily News his work was inspired by the GOP candidate’s “extreme views.”
“I’m just shocked and horrified by the whole of the Trump campaign,” he said. “To think that such extreme views within politics could reach the mainstream, I’m really just horrified.”
The wall was later trampled, but not before tourists and locals took pictures with it in a scene photographed by the artist himself.
