You can now stand under #Saltbae’s sultry sprinkle


By now you’ve probably met the sexy Turkish butcher who has everyone on the Internet salivating onto their screens. #Saltbae is everywhere, and he’s inspired many memes. Now, he’s inspired some IRL art.

That’s right. #Saltbae has jumped from the little screen to a big wall in Melbourne, Australia.

The man behind the mural is graffiti artist Lushsux, who has painted many an icon, and many a booty, on public spaces in Melbourne.

Passersby are clearly enjoying the tribute.

And it looks like even #Saltbae himself has gotten word of the exquisite portrait. He expressed his gratitude in an Instagram post, where he also shared his email.

Looks like he loves us as much as we love him.

So if you’re feeling crafty, send that fan art his way.
