Kanye West’s taste in art can now officially be classified as questionable.
The “Bound 2’’ rapper has spent years touting himself as a lover of fashion and the arts, even going as far as to call himself a “creative genius,’’ but the nearly naked portrait he reportedly presented bride Kim Kardashian with as a wedding gift says otherwise.
The Mirror reports that the painting was done by London street artist Bambi, who The Huffington Post claims has been called “the female Banksy,’’ and is supposed to be a Louboutin-clad Kardashian, in a thong, looking back at her assets. Doesn’t that scream romance?
“It was a recent commission and Bambi has turned it around in three weeks,’’ Bambi’s agent and manager Leonard Villa told the Mirror. “The request came through an agent and the fee is in five figures.’’
Add the portrait to the list of naked “art’’ West has given Kardashian (see the custom Hermès Birkin bag he gave her for Christmas below).
Kardashian and West were wed on May 24 in Florence, Italy and spent their honeymoon in Ireland and Prague before returning to Los Angeles June 2.
