Hollywood heartthrob James Franco has turned himself into art work in an effort to pay tribute to Hollywood icon James Dean. The Oscar nominated actor who shot to fame playing the legendary star in a 2001 TV biopic, got a body carving dedicated to his Deuces Wild co-star Brad Renfro, as part of the exhibition in Venice Biennale.

The 33-year-old got Renfro’s name carved into his right arm with a switchblade, documenting the process in photography and film, reported Los Angeles Times online. This isn’t the only Dean-related project coming up for Franco as he is getting ready to direct A Biopic of Mineo.
