Kanye West has hired Monica Warhol, Andy Warhol’s cousin, to paint a portrait of his fiancée Kim Kardashian.
Monica Warhol spoke with Page Six about her new commission, and says she thinks her famed cousin would have loved Kim Kardashian.
“She’s famous for nothing,” Monica Warhol said.
“Kim is beautiful. She’s so manufactured. She looks like a human Barbie.”
Monica Warhol also revealed she never met Andy, who died in 1987 when she was 10. She claims to have never studied Andy Warhol’s past work, saying she never even owned a book of his artwork until about a year ago.
However, Monica Warhol’s prints are reminiscent of her cousin’s signature pop art style. The younger Warhol has already drawn portraits of rapper Flo Rida and Lenny Kravitz.
After an elaborate October proposal at San Francisco’s AT&T Park, Kanye West has been over the moon when talking about Kim Kardashian, his future wife and mother of his daughter North.
“Our love story’s a love story for the ages,” Kanye West raved of his romance with Kim Kardashian in a recent interview.
“I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing.”
