As Justin Bieber deletes his Instagram account and Sofia Richie turns 18, Nobilified, which creates portraits of ordinary people and celebrities alike as deities and royalty, commemorates the occasion with a Neoclassical portrait of the couple.
Amidst the Instagram uproar over Justin Bieber and his new girlfriend Sofia Richie, a classically trained artist has recreated an historic painting depicting Thetis and Jupiter in order to celebrate the model’s 18th birthday and the couple’s budding relationship. Thetis represents model Sofia Richie and Jupiter, teenage heart throb Justin Bieber.
“Jupiter and Thetis”, painted by Jean August Dominique Ingres in 1811, depicts Thetis begging Jupiter to save the fate of her son Achilles, embroiled in the Trojan war.
In the modern adaptation of the painting, both Justin and Sofia are partially draped in fabric with Justin Bieber sitting on a marble throne, modelling his classically swept blonde hair with most of his tattoos on display as well as his acoustic guitar which he uses to woo his legions of beliebers. Sofia kneels and caresses Bieber’s chin as she seeks his attention. Featured, floating in the sky amongst the clouds, is Bieber’s first love, Selena Gomez, who has been acting as a guardian angel for Bieber’s fans while simultaneously being the catalyst for Justin deleting his Instagram account.
Nobilified founder, Chris Jensen said “Through his music and good looks, Justin has become a god to many young girls around the world. However, this has not stopped him from being harassed on social media by his own legion of fans who have shown to be aggressive as he expresses his new love interest. While many see Bieber as untouchable, deleting his Instagram account of 77.8million followers shows just how cyberbullying can affect us all.”
Both Bieber’s and Jupiter’s power are difficult for women to resist. Unlike Jupiter, Bieber made a decision to protect his girlfriend and relationship instead of continuing to receive the simultaneous adoration and condemnation of his female fans via social media. This makes him more likable than Jupiter and, more empathetic than any past version of himself.
“At Nobilified, we thought about which historical portraits best captured the energy between these two love birds and the complications brought about from their past relationships. We wanted to depict the severe contrast between the grandeur, might and majesty of the supreme Olympian male deity, Jupiter, in comparison with the delicate and seductive presence [E1] of the female nymph beside him. Demonstrating that in this young relationship, Bieber holds all the marbles.
Nobilified is an online gift website that makes it possible for customers to have their own faces painted on to any existing portrait by simply sending in a clear photo of themselves as well as the painting of their choice. Classically trained artists will then hand paint oil on to canvas, your chosen portrait to a variety of size specifications, to then be shipped worldwide.
In addition to providing high quality oil paintings, Nobilified wants to change the way people perceive art, by making it fun and accessible, thus giving customers the opportunity to share or gift a unique custom made oil painting with friends and family. No longer will having an oil painting of oneself hanging above the chimney be out-of-reach. This privilege used to be reserved for the upper tiers of society, but, now, it is shared with everyone, even if they are not knighted. A unique, hand-painted, oil-on-canvas work of art can add a touch of grandeur to any living quarters.
