The Last Supper Painting from Isaac Pelayo is a 7-foot x 14-foot rendition of Leonard DiVinci’s The Last Supper, decorated with signature smiley faces.
“I had a meeting with West months prior to the opening of the show … I had told him I was doing a [Last Supper] as the centrepiece, and he immediately loved the idea,” Pelayo notes. “Knowing him, I already knew he would claim it, which he did. So the piece was already sold to him,” he adds confidently, noting that the price tag was a whopping $100,000. “He also copped two of the largest sculptures in the exhibit as complimentary pieces.”
The rapper and painter collaborated in the past when the Griselda artist commissioned Pelayo to paint the album cover for Chris Benoit, commercially released under the name Supreme Blientele.
Past collectors of his work include street art legend Shepard Fairey and Bad Boy Entertainment founder Sean “Diddy” Combs.
