KFC says ‘oui’ to Louisville artist

by Sally Schroder

You can’t take the Kentucky out of Colonel Sanders, even when he’s in France.

So it’s fitting that KFC’s latest commercial across the pond features Kentucky art, a whimsical portrait of the colonel, hanging in the background. Created by Louisville artist Andy Perez, who is known for his colorful mixed-media images, the painting is a bright update of the iconic KFC founder.

“People have an image of the colonel that is frozen in time,” said Perez, who is also a graphic designer at C2 Strategic Communications. “But art is timeless, and it’s exciting to be a part of this.”
