Images of Justin Bieber’s penis (sculpture) created by controversial New York artist Daniel Edwards, are being released by Cory Allen Contemporary Art this week, in NYC.
“Allegory of a Teen Sex Symbol (Justin Bieber)” shows a symbolic representation, in a manner inspired by renaissance painter Giuseppe Acrimboldo’s portraits created from assemblages of fruit, and groupie Cynthia Plaster Caster’s famous series of plaster casts of 60s rock stars.
“Daniel is commenting on how young celebrities [Justin] grow up too fast in the media – how they are often sexualized too soon,” said the artist’s representative Cory Allen.
“It would be naive and hypocritical for anyone to be offended by this simple sculpture, yet be apathetic towards the plethora of images to which they subject themselves on a daily basis,” said Daniel Edwards, “I stand by the work.”
About the artist, Daniel Edwards is a professor of sculpture at the New York Academy of Art, whose past works include “Monument to Pro-Life,” which featured Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, Hillary Clinton, Selena-Justin and many more.
