Donald Trump got his wall.

Well, a wall, at least. The Los Angeles street artist Plastic Jesus recently built a miniature concrete wall around the presidential candidate’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, L.A. Weekly reported. 

The British-born artist’s installation is catching glances just as the real estate mogul presides over the Republican party’s national convention in Cleveland.

Six inches high with four mini American flag garnishes, the piece alludes to Trump’s infamous declaration that he will build a wall along the U.S./Mexico border to halt undocumented immigration. The art piece is topped off with tiny coils of barbed wire and signs that say “keep out.”

Dubbed the “Banksy of L.A.,” Plastic Jesus is behind other provocative pop-up installations such a series parking signs that say “No Kardashian Parking Anytime,” and later, “No Trump Parking Anytime.” [LAW]Cathaleen Chen
