LOS ANGELES, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Leaked 3D ultrasounds of Socialite Kim Kardashian and Duchess of Cambridge Catherine "Kate" Middleton have been fabricated into works of art by pop-culture artist Daniel Edwards; concluding his "Celebrity Baby Boomer" series that began with the 2006 controversial sculpture "Monument to Pro-Life," which depicted a nude Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug, at select venues in the Los Angeles area this summer, announces Cory Allen Contemporary Art.
The prenatal portraits of the winged celebrity fetuses titled "Special K and Little Grape," depicts the unborn babies of the expecting parents of Hollywood Super couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and British Royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton. Baby Kimye (Special K) is depicted as a chubby-cheeked-cherub with angelic curls, and 'Ks' shaved in the hair.
The royal baby (Little Grape), who resembles Prince William as an infant, sucks its thumb and wears the crown Queen Elizabeth wore as a princess for King George VI's coronation. The slumbering pair floats in harmony, appearing as womb-mates.
"I drew upon the artistic influences of Hans Holbein, King's Painter to King Henry VIII and contemporary baby photographer Anne Geddes," said Daniel Edwards, "but the current ultrasound technology helped me to create the portraits of these babies while they are still in the womb."
In preparation of the statue for the celebrity babies, the artist made pilgrimages to the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. to study Hans Holbein's Portrait of Edward VI as a Child from 1538, and to New Zealand to meet with Anne Geddes.
"The media frenzy and the public's fascination with celebrity babies has hit a fever pitch with Britney Spears, then Suri Cruise, Octomom, and Angelina Jolie's twins, to which, Daniel has created all into works of art," said Cory Allen. "And it is no wonder we see a spike in teen pregnancies when sensational headlines about celebrity pregnancies occur."
"Special K and Little Grape" will soon debut later this summer at select locations in Los Angeles, California, to be announced June 2013. For more info, contact Cory Allen at 323-393-3115 or visit http://www.cacanet.com/ .
