Kanye West Surfaces After Breakdown

Kanye West is back in the public eye -- surfacing exactly where you'd expect him to Thursday in Los Angeles.

The 'Life of Pablo' rapper was spotted at an art installation at the Pacific Design Center ... and he was sporting blonde hair -- a different look from what he had before his hospitalization for a mental breakdown.

Good to see 'Ye getting back into what he loves.

As we first reported ... he's also making music in his home studio.
