Kanye West -- Mother/Daughter Portrait Moves Him (VIDEO)

Exclusive Details

Someone touched Kanye West with a tribute to his mom.

Kanye was going into his NYC apartment with Kim, when an artist stood at the front door with a multi-media portrait of Donda West holding North West, the granddaughter she never met. Kanye was clearly moved, took the portrait and walked inside. 

Donda died in 2007 after undergoing cosmetic surgery.

The artist, Andrew Gonzalez, tells us it took him a day to create the work and he attached his contact info. Smart man.
