Colourful William and Kate are poptastic

Monday November 14, 2011

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been immortalised as pop art.

Renowed Brazilian artist Romero Britto will fly into London on Tuesday to unveil his royal portrait series at the Imitate Modern Gallery.

The painter, who has illustrated personalities such as Madonna, Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson - and counts as famous clients Bill Clinton, Elton John and Prince Charles - will reveal his first series on royals with William and Kate as a highlight.

“It was wonderful to create their portrait, I just adore their love story and what they represent for all of us....LOVE, LONGEVITY, and HISTORY,” he said.

The three-part exhibition will feature four original oil-on-canvas royal portraits as well as a further series of numbered, limited edition prints and other collectibles.

After the private viewing on November 15, the show will run until December 7.
