Aussie shock jock gagged in mural

A mural depicting shock jock Alan Jones wearing a ball-gag head harness has popped up on an inner Sydney wall.

Sydney-based artist Scott Marsh posted a photo of the Chippendale artwork on Sunday morning, along with the hashtag #wouldntitbenice.

The image shows the outspoken radio host clad in a pink suit and tie with a white shirt and strapped into a brown head harness with a bright red ball gag.

It follows Jones' controversial comments last Thursday about New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern.

Jones criticised Ms Ardern after she said "Australia has to answer to the Pacific" on climate change during a forum in Tuvalu, and suggested Prime Minister Scott Morrison "shove a sock down" her throat.

He has since apologised for his comments but last Saturday was threatened with the sack by employer Macquarie Radio.

A number of advertisers have also abandoned his breakfast show on Sydney's 2GB and 4BC in Brisbane.

Marsh has previously painted murals in other inner Sydney locations, including depictions of former prime minister Tony Abbott marrying himself, and Mr Abbott dressed as a bride with one hand down the pants of a shirtless Cardinal George Pell.

He has also painted murals of US rapper Kanye West kissing himself, former NSW premier Mike Baird holding a glass of red wine, a kebab and a cigarette with a stack of casino chips in front of him, and late singer George Michael depicted as a saint.

A number have been the subject of controversy and targeted by vandals.

AAP has contacted Macquarie Media and Marsh for comment.
