Andy Warhol’s paintings have gone for as much as $100 million (Eight Elvises).
So they just do popart. Here are some examples from their site.

I just uploaded a photo and posterized… and played with the colors a little bit.
It’s a free website. You probably could get an even better look with photoshop (but I don’t have it).
Then you would want to have it printed on a canvas.
Here are a couple of other examples of popart that would be great in a room.
