Nathan Wyburn, 23, shows his admiration for the pop singer using very unconventional menths

Gay artist paints Miley Cyrus with his tongue
15 October 2013

A gay Welsh artist has painted a picture of Miley Cyrus, but not with any old paintbrush. He used his tongue.

Nathan Wyburn, a 23-year-old artist, shot to fame on the 2011 series of Britain’s Got Talent with his pop culture portraits using everyday items like coffee, pasta, and Marmite on toast.

So what made Wyburn want to tongue Miley Cyrus?

Speaking to Gay Star News, he said he wanted to created the painting after every single picture he saw of Cyrus after the Video Music Awards was her with her tongue out.

‘It’s becoming her trademark image, and doing that hand gesture, it’s becoming a stereotype,’ he said.

‘All my artwork looks at stereotypes. It’s sort of saying, in a blunt way, this is who you are now.’

But while Cyrus might be happy twerking away, the controversy has certainly helped her career.

Her single Wrecking Ball became her first to reach the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

For Wyburn, since leaving Britain’s Got Talent his own career has gone up in lights.

Originally from small town Ebbw Vale in Wales, he is flying from Helsinki to Vienna and making a living from his artwork.
