Kim Kardashian's baby has been immortalised in an oil painting called "My First Selfie".

As if the world needs even more pictures of the Kardashian-West clan, Irish artist Frank O'Dea has used North West as inspiration for his work.

The Dubliner said: "Like mother like daughter, it seems Kim Kardashian is teaching her daughter North to be as obsessed with selfies just like herself."

He says his work was inspired by the Kardashians and the "obsessive culture of selfies that we now live in".

"It was only going to be a matter of time when babies start taking selfies -  no better woman than Kim Kardashian to start the ball rolling," he added.

My First Selfie can be viewed at Balla Bán Art Gallery, Westbury Mall, Dublin.
