Warhol loved commemorating everyday, useless, vacuous objects by turning them into glorious works of art and was obsessed with celebrity culture, coining the now famous phrase in 1968 that "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes."
Unfortunately, Andy is no longer with us—having died in 1987—however, Kanye West has found the next best thing it seems—reportedly dropping a cool $30,000 on the closest substitute to an Andy Warhol masterpiece of his dearly beloved fiancee……. one painted by Andy’s (still living) cousin, Monica Warhol.
Now, this may come as a surprise to many, but I’m no fine art aficionado… however, I does like what I like, so to speak… and in my very humble opinion Monica’s work is left a little lacking when held to the standard of her late great cousin.
But, hey, like I said, what do I know about this whole “art” thing?
In Touch magazine has an exclusive first look at Monica’s Kardashian masterpieces though—and, well, why don’t you decide for yourself?
Despite having never actually met Andy, Monica does seem to be able to speak on his behalf, telling the New York Daily News, Warhol would have loved to have painted Kim because, “she's an icon, she's famous for nothing.”
