Katie Hopkins crucified portrait a great success!
Nobilified was recently part of a fundraising effort. Targeting Katie Hopkins, we decided to paint the lovely lady as Christ crucified on the cross. The portrait was made and prints of the custom oil portrait were put on sale to raise money for a Syrian Refugee organization looking to help host a family in Canada.
The controversial portrait was picked up by the UK's independent newspapers and legendary Huffington post. Katie Hopkins even joined in on the fun saying that we should send the portrait to a mosque in Luton.
Painted in the style of renaissance artist Diego Velazquez’s masterpiece of Christ on the cross, the portrait was inspired by the 40-year-old’s claim she was the “Jesus of the outspoken”.
Hopkins suggested in April refugees were “cockroaches” as British newspapers carried reports of men, women and children drowning off Europe’s coast. Her remarks were later condemned by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights.
