Look: Kimye’s Love Immortalized In Art
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s soon-to-be child-bearing romance has been immortalized in a painting — posing as Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic’s famed front-of-ship scene — all thanks to artist Paul Fuentes, who serves as an in-store artist and graphic designer for the marketing department of Whole Food’s TriBeCa location in New York City.
“I was assigned to do a generic Valentines Day themed promotion,” Fuente said of the piece, according to the Huffington Post. “Kim and Kanye have been in the news a lot lately as ‘The Couple.'”
But Kimye isn’t Fuente’s first foray into portraying the likes of Hollywood’s famous faces. “For me, pop culture is always fun to reference because everyone can relate to it and get involved,” he explained.
On his tumblr, titled “Chalk Zombies,” Fuentes chronicles archives of his A-list illustrations, drawing on everything from Star Wars, Home Alone and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, to painters like Gustav Klimt, Vincent Van Gough, and Pablo Picasso.
After his Kimye art caught attention online, E!’s The Soup was inspired to pick up the paintbrush — er, on Photoshop — to render Kardashian and West in a few other famous movie moments.
