Kanye West is looking for some serious artistic talent to paint the official portrait of his fiancee Kim Kardashian.

The rapper has tapped Andy Warhol’s cousin, Monica Warhol, for the job, the New York Post reports. Warhol is an artist who lives and works in Tucson, Ariz., and has painted other celebrities like rapper Flo Rida. Like the late Andy Warhol, she makes silk screen portraits from photos.

“She’s an icon. She’s famous for nothing. Andy would have loved her,” Warhol told the Post of Kim. “Kim is beautiful. She’s so manufactured. She looks like a human Barbie.”

When the painting will be completed remains unknown.
