Nate Hill, Artist, Drapes Nearly-Naked White Models Around His Neck As 'Trophy Scarves'

This man drapes half-naked white models around his neck as "trophy scarves."

Nate Hill, 36, a self-described part-time performance artist, is supposedly drawing attention to the social complexities surrounding mixed-race relationships.

Hill says that the act of posing in a tuxedo with nearly-naked women around his neck is meant to draw attention to an "issue in the public now about black men who might think of being with white women as a status symbol," he told MailOnline.

The artist has already amassed over 7,500 Instagram followers to his account @TrophyScarves.

As for the obviously sexual undertones, Hill is married and says his wife “tolerates” the project.

"I blocked her on Twitter, so she can’t see what I’m doing. She just followed me on Instagram, so I’m probably going to block her on there too," he told Vice.

He had a similar art project called White Power Milk, in which people bought milk that had been gargled by white women.
