Cupcake Katy

The National Portrait Gallery in Washington has been given this oil-on-linen portrait of Katy Perry entitled Cupcake Katy (2010) by New York artist Will Cotton. The tongue-in-cheek painting has been donated by the wealthy Dicke family, whose fortune derives from a US forklift truck company based in Ohio. Don't sneer. The artist has captured Katy's fruitcake pop persona extremely well and she dominates the picture. Fans take note: the portrait goes on display in the Gallery on 18 June (CLICK).
