Hilton, Bush porn 'portraits' to be shown

NEW YORK, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- A London gallery said portraits of Paris Hilton and U.S. President George W. Bush made from pornographic images will be shown at a temporary New York gallery.

Lazarides Gallery spokeswoman Elizabeth Barrett said the portraits, created by Jonathan Yeo, will be among the works displayed at the temporary gallery in a former restaurant supply store in New York as part of a show titled "The Outsiders," The Telegraph reported Friday.

Yeo said he got the idea to create portraits in the form of collages using images from pornographic magazines after the White House canceled a commission for him to paint a portrait of Bush in 2004.

Barrett said the portrait of Hilton, titled "Paris, 2008," was sold just prior to the show for an undisclosed price. She said posters of the work will be sold at the exhibit for $20 each.

"The Outsiders" opens to the public Friday.
