Apparently, the fashionista Kim Kardashian has been very, very good last year, since she got a Hermes Birkin bag from her lover Kanye West for Christmas. Of course, it wasn’t just a Birkin. That would have been too obvious. No, Kanye West gave her a custom made Birkin, hand painted by one of the greatest artists of all time: George Condo.
The painting features several, monster-like nude figures.
Birkin Bags sell for over $16,000, and Condo’s paintings have been known to sell for over a million. Do the math.
Kanye has collaborated with the American contemporary artist in the past, commissioning him to paint five different album covers for West’s 2010 album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” Kanye has collaborated with artists before, like Takashi Murakami and David LaChapelle.
