British portrait artist Jonathan Yeo has stirred up controversy with his portrait of Paris Hilton comprised of pages from old porn magazines.
The portrait of Paris Hilton was snapped up by Damien Hirst for an undisclosed sum at the artist’s recent show. Yeo actually offered Paris, in jest, the proceeds from the collage’s poster sales ($20 each) since she moaned that she wasn’t compensated for the notorious 2004 sex video of Hilton and then-boyfriend Rick Salomon.
The inspiration for Yeo’s porn collage came after the White House canceled a commission to paint President Bush in 2004. To have the last laugh, Yeo did his first collage of President George Bush.
