Not only did Kanye West spend a whopping $30,000 on a portrait of his fiance Kim Kardashian, but this is what it looks like! We were expecting something more along the lines of the Kardashian's new holiday card, but hey, whatever floats Yeezy's boat...
Kanye commissioned Andy Warhol's niece Monica to create the pop art-inspired piece, and when In Touch Weekly asked her about it, she said, “It’s a special gift. I am picking up where Andy left off, and Kim is the perfect addition to the Warhol legacy.” Monica added, "There is no way Andy Warhol would not have painted her. Kim is manufactured gorgeous and is beyond fabulous. How could Andy not have been inspired to paint her like he did Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor?”
Kim’s portrait will be immortalized as a part of what Monica refers to as her “ongoing series of contemporary superstars” in what she has branded “the New Warhol format.” She continued, “My style incorporates layers upon layers both hand drawn and in Photoshop, printed out and burned to individual silk screens, and is then hand-painted in the beginning, middle and the end.”
