Los Angeles artist Seaton Brown recently completed a commissioned 12ft tall portrait of Michael Jackson made from 1,680 unpainted soda-pop cans entitled “A Tribute to the King of Pop V2.”

The 144sqft piece was unveiled in an impromptu, guerrilla-style street-art showing on the corner of Hollywood and Highland at midday about 2 weeks ago, where the artist and his team erected the megalith on the sidewalk. Onlookers blocked traffic to get a photo of the piece, which could be seen from a block away at the El Capitan theater.

This is the second such work Brown has done in addition to similar pieces, such as a 6ft tall portrait of Pamela Anderson made from candy and candy wrappers entitled “Eye Candy” – which was ultimately eaten by rats (a fitting end to the piece and the commentary the artist was making).

The “King of Pop V2” was crated and shipped across country where it will be placed in one of the Ripley’s Entertainment museums, as yet to be determined.

A short video of the creation of the piece and it’s unveiling on Hollywood Blvd. can be seen below:
