A piece of graffiti art sold for US$110m in New York

Postby Duane 3NE 2NR » May 18th, 2017, 10:40 pm

A painting by the late graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat has sold at auction in New York for $110.5m (£85.4m).

Image

That is nearly double the price of his previous most expensive work, which was bought a year ago.

The untitled work, which depicts a face in the shape of a skull, went to a telephone buyer following 10 minutes of bidding with a client in Sotheby's.
Basquiat, a native New Yorker, died in 1988 of a heroin overdose aged 27.

Meanwhile a Picasso portrait sells for $45m

Are there any locals that do graffiti art? I never noticed any, and no, writing "Kendra have AIDS" , and "Rakesh wuz hair" don't count
