Harry Styles Adds Hilarious Parody Painting of Himself to His Collection: A Joe Lycett Creation
English singer and heartthrob Harry Styles recently acquired a unique addition to his art collection – a painting of himself, crafted by none other than comedian Joe Lycett. The humorous piece was ingeniously conceived as a parody of a work by renowned artist David Hockney, which is currently on display at the esteemed National Portrait Gallery.
The cheeky exchange between Harry and Joe began when the painting caught the attention of the “Sign Of The Times” singer. Despite some playful fan commentary suggesting the artwork bore a resemblance to comedian Alan Carr rather than Harry himself, the pop star was captivated by the comedic charm of the piece.
In a series of entertaining text message screenshots shared by Joe Lycett, the two engaged in a spirited negotiation over the price of the portrait. Harry playfully expressed his interest in owning the artwork, writing, “I think it’s incredibly important that I purchase this portrait from you. If you’d ever consider parting with this masterpiece, I’d like to hang it in my home immediately.”
Ever the quick-witted comedian, Joe initially proposed a price of £8 for the painting. However, the good-natured haggling continued as Harry managed to secure the artwork for the bargain price of £6.50. But Joe wasn’t finished with his jesting, offering a final counter-offer of £6 and a KitKat Chunky Peanut Butter bar, adding a touch of humor to the transaction.
In the end, a £6 BACS transfer sealed the deal, leaving both Harry Styles and Joe Lycett amused by the entertaining process.
Joe Lycett’s comedic creation adds a lighthearted touch to Harry’s art collection and provides a playful homage to the iconic work of David Hockney. As fans eagerly anticipate the placement of the portrait in Harry’s home, it is clear that this delightful piece will hold a special place among the singer’s treasured possessions.
