Kanye West has reportedly given his wife Kim Kardashian a painting of herself in a g-string and high heels titled 'Perfect Bitch' as a wedding gift.

The painting – which is apparently titled 'My Queen Kim – Perfect Bitch' – was crafted by street artist Bambi. and The Mirror reports that Kanye wants the picture to hang in the couple's bedroom.

The rapper's manager Leonard Villa said the brief for the piece was "something regal but typically Kim". He added: "This has been done on metal and just completed in time for the couple's return. It was a recent commission and Bambi has turned it around in three weeks. The request came through an agent and the fee is in five figures." Click here to view the painting.

Kanye West is reported to have called the Kardashian family "the most remarkable people of our time" after marrying Kim in Florence last month.

During his 20-minute wedding speech, West called his bride "ideal art" and "the ideal celebrity", according to E! News. He added that the Kardashian family are "an industry".

West is also reported to have used the speech to attack celebrity culture, apparently saying: "People feel it's OK to put you on the tabloid covers to sell your image, to use you in a Saturday Night Live spoof. But we don't negotiate. We're not like that. We're not stupid."

The couple, whose daughter North was born in June 2013, went on honeymoon at a private estate in Munster in the Republic of Ireland and returned to the US on Friday (May 30).

West is said to be releasing a new album this summer, with producers including Rick Rubin, Q-Tip and Mike Will Made It having confirmed they're working with the rapper on the follow-up to 2013's 'Yeezus'.
