It’s official – Kanye West thinks Kim Kardashian is a living work of art. I’m just waiting for him to say “Kim Kardashian's body belongs in modern museums” in his next wild radio interview. Gag.

While Kim remains in human form, Kanye will have to preserve her perfection some other way, so he has commissioned Andy Warhol’s alleged cousin to do just that.

Monica Warhol is the supposed niece of the late-great pop artist. She carries on her uncle’s legacy by creating art that is very similar to that of her relative’s – bright, colorful, and screen printed. “I am picking up where Andy left off, and Kim is the perfect addition to the Warhol legacy,” she told In Touch.

Miss Warhol has supposedly been enlisted by Kanye West to create a $30,000 portrait of Kim Kardashian. “There is no way Andy Warhol would not have painted her," Monica said. "Kim is manufactured gorgeous and is beyond fabulous. How could Andy not have been inspired to paint her like he did Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor?”
