Whilst the Kardashian clan are undoubtedly a talented family, Kim Kardashian’s daughter North has been seriously impressing fans with her incredible artwork.
The nine-year-old has even been hailed as an ‘art prodigy’ on social media, thanks to her oil paintings and superb sketches of her famous relatives.
But it was the youngster’s rendering of rapper Ice Spice that has fans in a frenzy as her mum Kim shared the detailed sketch on Instagram.
Understandably, the SKIMS entrepreneur is an incredibly proud mum and later shared her daughter’s artwork on their joint TikTok account.
Fans loved the drawings, with one writing on Twitter: “is north west like??? an art prodigy?? or are they faking?”
Even Ice Spice was impressed by the stunning sketch, as she reposted the TikTok on her Instagram story later that day.
Kim has also shared several other pieces by North on social media, including drawings of her grandmother Kris and young brother, Psalm West.
The pointed Instagram story comes after the nine-year-old was targeted by online trolls for her artwork back in 2021.
It happened after her mother shared a Bob Ross style oil painting North had done, and within minutes, mean spirited comments appeared online about her.
One tweet read: “Kim Kardashian's 7-year-old daughter North West gets compared to painter Bob Ross after her mother shows off her artwork, big deal when I was young mine was compared to Earl Sheib."
A commentator then cruel added: “They say talent can skip a generation so maybe she got the talent that passed by her dad?”
The little girl’s art was even the subject of several online articles, which accused the Kardashians of ‘faking’ the painting.
However, Kim leapt to her daughter’s defence on social media.
In a lengthy Instagram story, she wrote: “My daughter and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured."
She continued: “North worked incredibly hard on her painting which took several weeks to complete…As a proud mom, I wanted to share her work with everyone.”
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star then blasted ‘grown adult[s]’ who had targeted her daughter, telling them to stop ‘embarrassing’ themselves online.
It’s unclear whether North had seen any of the hurtful comments, but her mum pointedly wrote: “How dare you see children doing awesome things and then try to accuse them of NOT being awesome?!...Please stop embarrassing yourselves with the negativity and allow every child to be GREAT!!!”.
Well North, we can’t wait to see what you create next. Keep up the good work.
