oscars and philip seymour hoffman - Notorious Los Angeles based street artists Plastic Jesus has struck again with a controversial art installation on the corner of La Brea and Hollywood Boulevard of an 8-foot replica Oscar award holding a syringe to its forearm. The plaque on the plinth reads "Hollywood's Best Kept Secret". The art stunt follows the recent death of tragic actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was found dead in his New York apartment of a suspected drug overdose. Hoffman won an Academy Award for Best Actor in 2005 for his role in Capote. Plastic Jesus hit the headlines in 2013 with his Best Buy Prank 'Useless Plastic Box 1.2', which saw the artist placing fake products, complete with price tags, on the shelves of six Best Buy stores in Los Angeles area. The fakes went unnoticed by staff for the several days. - Hollywood, California, United States - Thursday 27th February 2014
