Breaking News: Jean-Michel Basquiat's painting of a skull sold for $110.5 million at auctionhttps://t.co/JVJ6qKwB2L
What a disgusting display of money wasting this is. All the people who could benefit from that money, and this smirking little shit wastes it on something I wouldn't hang in a dollar slice pizzeria.Gross.Spare me the "it's his money" nonsense. Yeah, and I have a right to say he spent an obscene amount of money which could've went to much more worthwhile things.
Bought by a Japanese billionaire, to be put on public display in a museum he is building.Damn, wish I had thought to go over to his studio on the Bowery and spend a couple of thousand bucks back in the early 1980s, I could cash out today and buy lovely old buildings to prevent them from being torn down!
I think Basquiat is overrated.
@Gojira: That makes two of us.@10:15am: You could be right, but something is "worth" whatever someone will pay for it, thus this painting is "worth" $110 million.
To all the commmenters:I wish I had bought.....20/20 hindsight. Doesn't make you smarter.It deserves to be in a museum......no it doesn't.He spent a lot of money that could have been used for.......talk to your government about that problem firstIt will hang in a public place.....hope the kids don't get scared and have nightmares.Basquiat is overated....glad to see there is still some sanity out there.And my personal opinion...yech.
9:29But I would have to read the article to get that information and I'm just not into reading.
These paintings belong in the Museum of Not Art.
