Classically-trained artists have reimagined two of the most famous portraits in the world, Mona Lisa and King Henry VIII as Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. The rapper was transformed into King Henry VIII, known for his short temper and inflated ego – while the reality star is pictured as Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
The works of art, which took five days to make, were commissioned by online antique specialist http://www.LoveAntiques.com to celebrate its second birthday. Members of the public interested in owning their own artistic fusion can buy prints in various sizes from just £10, with money going towards Kanye’s arts institution, Donda’s House.
The original paintings have also been sent to them as a housewarming gift. Will Thomas, managing director at LoveAntiques.com said: “Given the famed egos of both Kim and Kanye, we wouldn’t be surprised – and hope – to learn that the originals we’ve sent to the couple find themselves on the walls of the next property they decide to buy,” “We also wanted the public to have an opportunity to own what are very unique pieces of art, and in doing so, raise money for charity at the same time.”
