Massive oil painting of Lady Gaga done by fan

HOLLYWOOD, CA (NBC) - A massive oil painting of Lady Gaga appeared Friday morning in the Hollywood Hills.

The painting, measuring 30 feet by 30 feet, was the work of artist Castro.

In an e-mail to NBC, Castro writes, "Hollywood, where stars are worshipped today, just to be crucified tomorrow. ...The idea behind the painting goes beyond Gaga and way beyond religion."

Castro says the Christ-like depiction of the pop star was installed atop Runyon Canyon around 6 a.m., Friday.

Gaga's publicist denied any involvement, saying their camp was unaware of the artwork.
