Celebrities have inspired some pretty interesting art over the years. We've seen a golden yogini Kate Moss, a birthing Britney and countless Marilyn Monroe images but the latest celeb-inspired piece is pretty unique. Phantom-Financial has announced the December unveiling of the sculpture of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, "Brangelina Forever" by artist Daniel Edwards, just minutes from Brad Pitt's own birthplace in the Oklahoma City area. The sculpture is part of the 4,000 sq. ft., $500,000 house named "The Brangelina", by the Los Angeles artist known as Xvala.
"Brangelina Forever" is a life-size casting of Brad and Angelina in an embrace. It will be installed in the ceiling of the master bedroom. A press release states that the statues contain crushed glass from wine glasses from which they drank while reportedly celebrating the anniversary of their first meeting on the set of 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith.' "The Brangelina" is a house which is stenciled with words that represent both Pitt and Jolie including quotes and references to some of Jolie's tattoos. The house will be sold and any potential owner must promise to extend 'honorary ownership' of their home to Pitt and Jolie and to accommodate them every time they come to town to visit Pitt's grandmother. The Brangelina will be on public view starting Wednesday December 16th at 11 a.m. in the Thornbrooke neighborhood of Edmond.
The statue and the house are part of the documentary "Domestic Bliss: The Daniel Edwards/XVALA Project" by Oklahoma filmmaker Dave Smith scheduled to premiere at The New York Academy of Art. A trailer is after the jump.
