New Tupac Statue
As reported earlier by TMZ, artist Nijel Binns who previously has created statues of Michael Jackson, Malcolm X and Fida Kahlo is the man behind the new Tupac Shakur Statue. The bronze statue is set to cost approximate $500,000 and weight over a 1,000 pounds will stand at 7 feet tall. The 13″ inch clay sketched model can be seen below.
The statue is set to stand where the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts once stood. Jim Burnett who purchased the property hired Nijel Binns to take on the project for the Tupac statue which is set to debut in September.
