You guys just don't get art.

The true value is not that of the price tag, but of the mood and tone such a piece of artwork would bring to the home of any investor. The way the maroon floats gently with the coal black, on a bed of......yeah I'm out of fancy words. Artwork be crazy mad yo.

WOW, I paint and love art, and never heard of this guy, but his work, or at least the pieces you posted are shit! Who would pay that much for that crap?

We know the answer to that, but come on!

Even if I were a billionaire, I would feel guilty buying a painting like that. If I paid millions for a painting I would have to immediately donate the same amount to charity to even things out and clear my conscience. There are starving children in the world and someone will spend 86mil on a painting that a child could do? In my mind that is really f****d up. But then again, I'm not a billionaire.

If you want to peer into the life of a billionare family watch "Queen Of Versailles." They're so out of tune with normal issues although they do return to "normalcy" somewhat towards the end of the documentary.

Billionaires are in a league of their own. They're simply smarter than the rest, luckier, or inherited it.

When I'm a billionaire I'll get someone on MMAF to paint me something for a few mil.

This is too funny. I see street performers on the strip of Vegas who draw a million times better than that and are making scraps. Weird world we live in...
