Lance Armstrong Doping Scandal Satirized in Los Angeles Street Art

Lance Armstrong, the seven-time Tour de France winner who admitted during a recent TV interview with Oprah Winfrey that he had taken performance-enhancing drugs and received blood transfusions, is the subject of Los Angeles street artist Plastic Jesus's latest work, a small stencil in the Melrose Avenue area that show the yellow jersey-wearing cyclist hooked up to an I.V.


Though Armstrong, a member of the Aspen Art Museum's board of directors and a collector of contemporary art, has been known to ride bicycles custom-designed by the likes of KAWS and Shepard Fairey, we suspect he won't be interested in adding Plastic Jesus's three-foot mural to his collection.
