A Jean-Michel Basquiat Painting Has Just Sold for $110 Million USD

Jean-Michel Basquiat's Untitled Sells for $110 Million USD at Auction - 3818625

Untitled, a 1982 piece by Jean-Michel Basquiat, was bought for $110 million USD at an auction at Sotheby’s in New York. As well as breaking the record for Basquiat’s most expensive work, the sale also became the most expensive work by any US artist, the most expensive work by a black artist, and the first $100 million USD artwork to have been created after 1980. The piece, a portrayal of a face in the shape of a skull in oil stick, acrylic and spray paint, was expected to go for around $60 million USD in pre-sale estimates and has rarely been seen since it was last sold in 1984. The buyer, 41-year-old fashion entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa from Japan, is the same person who broke Basquiat’s last record a year ago, spending $57.3 million USD that time.
Jean-Michel Basquiat is also going to be the subject of a retrospective at London’s Barbican, his first major exhibition on British soil.

    The power couple Jay Z and Beyoncé now have a combined net worth of $1.16 billion USD.
    Forbes recently revealed Queen Bey had earned a hefty sum of $350 million USD. And with Hov’s new $200 million USD deal with promoter organization Live Nation, of which he’s been partnered with for nine years, his net worth is now a staggering $810 million USD.
    Live Nation and I entered unchartered territory in 2008,” said Hov in a statement released at the time of the new deal’s signing. “Over nine years, we have traveled the world producing historic music experiences. Michael Rapino is an industry visionary, and this renewed partnership is a testament to our longstanding relationship and the talented individuals at Live Nation. For the next 10 years, we will continue redefining the live event landscape.”
    With Beyoncé’s album Lemonade hitting the number one spot last year, and Jay revealed as one of the richest rappers of 2017, there’s no sign of this billion dollar train slowing down.
