The Kardashians are a controversial bunch. The four oldest girls are the children of Kris and Robert Kardashian. The couple divorced in 1991, and Robert, a lawyer, defended his friend O.J. Simpson against murder charges in a famous, televised trial in 1994. Kim and her sisters were raised by their mom, Kris, and her second husband, Bruce Jenner, a famous olympic field athlete. Until 2007, Kim Kardashian was best known as actress Lindsey Lohan’s stylist. When the successful and long running reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians debuted in 2007, she cemented her own identity as a TV star and general celebrity.
A Unique Hand-Painted Bag
Kim is engaged to musician and longtime friend Kanye West and has had a baby with him. You may have heard that Kanye gave Kim a $40,000 hand painted bag for Christmas. The painting on the bag is a scene with female nudes and a demon-headed man. It’s a little shocking, a little disturbing and not at all what you’d expect to see on the side of an elegant leather carry bag. Kim seems pleased with it, though. She doesn’t shy away from controversy and she likes to be noticed.
The painting on Kim Kardashian’s new bag doesn’t appeal to everyone, but there’s no doubt that George Condo’s edgy, surrealistic works are highly valued in the art world. Kim is part of a social and professional scene that’s a little less constrained than the mainstream culture in the US. However, some might say that Kanye West’s negative comments about her taste and obvious influence over how she looks and how she dresses is over the top and disrespectful. Is the art on the bag partly a dig at Kim? If so, is it coming from Kenye or from the artist? We’ll never know for sure.
