While the rest of the world never would have thought they would see a Warhol painting of a Kardashian, Kanye West has other plans and looks to make it a reality. Page Six reports that Yeezy has “commissioned Andy Warhol’s cousin Monica Warhol, an artist who lives and works in Tucson, Ariz., to paint Kim Kardashian.” What did Monica have to say about this? She told a Page Six reporter, “She’s an icon. She’s famous for nothing. Andy would have loved her. Kim is beautiful. She’s so manufactured. She looks like a human Barbie.”
Monica may be a Warhol but she didn’t study her uncle and in fact, didn’t own a book about him until just recently. She does however, follow in his footsteps by finding herself immersed in pop culture. She’s already painted portraits of Flo Rida for the music video for “How I Feel” and is currently working on a piece reminiscent of Lenny Kravitz.
