A collective of artists under the name The Most Famous Artist has claimed responsibility for the steel obelisks just as a fourth one was erected outside Joshua Tree, following appearances in Utah, Romania, and California. The group originally revealed themselves with an Instagram post of a monolith with the caption “monolith-as-a-service.com,” drawing attention from Internet users.

Followers of the account then asked “Was it you?” to which the account repeatedly replied, “if by you you mean us, yes.” Since then, the group’s founder Matty Mo has also posted additional proof on Twitter, including a photo of someone working on a monolith, as well as dated renders of the structures.

“I am not able to say much because of legalities of the original installation,” Mo wrote to Mashable. “I can say we are well known for stunts of this nature and at this time we are offering authentic art objects through monoliths-as-a-service. I cannot issue additional images at this time, but I can promise more on this in the coming days and weeks.”

In addition to Mo, an art director named Carlos Estrada and a photographer named Erik Junke have also been tied to the project as potential collaborators.

Elsewhere in the arts, Dia Chelsea will reopen in April 2021 following a $20 million USD renovation.
