At $110.5 Million, Basquiat Painting Becomes Priciest Work Ever Sold By A U.S. Artist

Jean-Michel Basquiat "joined the pantheon of great, great artists" Thursday night, when the late painter's 1982 work Untitled sold for a record-breaking $110.5 million at auction — the highest sum ever paid at auction for a U.S.-produced artwork.

That breathless assessment was offered after the sale by Oliver Barker, chairman of Sotheby's Europe. So you can imagine just how thrilled the buyer must have been.

"I am happy to announce that I just won this masterpiece," Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa said in an Instagram post revealing his identity as the buyer. "When I first encountered this painting, I was struck with so much excitement and gratitude for my love of art. I want to share that experience with as many people as possible."

Jean-Michel Basquiat's Untitled was produced in 1982. The Los Angeles Times says that until shortly before Thursday's auction, it hadn't been shown in public since a private collector bought it for $19,000 in 1984.
Nice investment. And at least it's not a fucking Jackson Pollock piece of shit.

Wikipedia wrote:My Bed is a work by the British artist Tracey Emin. First created in 1998, it was exhibited at the Tate Gallery in 1999 as one of the shortlisted works for the Turner Prize. It consisted of her bed with bedroom objects in an abject state, and gained much media attention. Although it did not win the prize, its notoriety has persisted.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Bed

Seen it (or a reconstruction?) in Bern – way more disgusting than on this picture.

The funny part:
My Bed was bought by Charles Saatchi for £150,000 and displayed as part of the first exhibition when the Saatchi Gallery opened its new premises at County Hall, London (which it has now vacated). Saatchi also installed the bed in a dedicated room in his own home.

The Pathetic Journey of ‘Mattress Girl’ Emma Sulkowicz
National Review
... Seeking to keep her notoriety alive, she has created a “performance art” piece in which she is tied up in her scanties, hoisted in the air, and beaten for the amusement and edification of spectators. We’ll spare you the pictures. Suffice it to say that if they depicted your daughter, your first thought probably would not be, “My little girl is so empowered.” ...
The article is somewhat unsympathetic, but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't art.

It is so-o-o-o-o-o art.

She has a degree in art from Columbia University.
Needs evidences:

Probably NSFW of course

As far as whether it is art, sure. Just not very original art. It's mild bondage/public humiliation fetish porn and you can find many more like it on pornhub.

Two years after "Mattress Performance," Emma Sulkowicz continues to provoke. Her most recent piece, in which she was bound, berated, and hung from the ceiling, tackles the question of the value of art under the Trump administration.

Apparently the audience wasn't made aware of what sort of performance they were going to witness.
Weeks before, she had disclosed to me that Master Avery was her close friend and a trained professional dominatrix. No one else in the room seemed to know this. While Sulkowicz was tied up during the performance, a distraught audience member walked over to her to ask if she wanted to be untied. Master Avery, noticing this, leaned over to say something to the concerned viewer, and they walked away.

Later, I ran into the concerned viewer in line for the bathroom. They told me that they had just come from a workshop on combating gender violence, and added that there should have been a trigger warning before Sulkowicz's performance. But the viewer was left perturbed and questioning what it meant to be an unsuspecting spectator to such violence against women, taking their time to enunciate and practically spit out the word "violence."

She's not a fan of Jackson Pollack
"Historically, performance art has been a very important medium for women of color and queer people," said Sulkowicz. "There's an accessibility to it, it's the only art form that doesn't cost money. Then there's also that women, people of color, queer people, we live embodied histories."


"My body already carries material in it just because of the way I look, it's embedded in my skin," Sulkowicz explained. "White men have the privilege of entire institutions built for their paintings... These paintings are very often abstract. You have people like Pollock splattering a bunch of shit and then saying it's art. It doesn't say anything political and in fact, that actual political statement it does say is: 'I'm a white man and I can do whatever the fuck I want and make a ton of money off of it.'"

Never heard of this (now dead) guy:
The Guardian (2001) wrote: 'I am the king of painters'
Andrew Vicari paints scenes of the Gulf war, motorcycle cops, horses and busty women. If you're not familiar with his work, that's because most of it ends up in Saudi Arabia, where they pay millions for it. Stuart Jeffries meets the man from a Welsh steel town who became Britain's richest artist
[…]
Unlike these rivals in wealth, though, Vicari is practically unknown in his homeland. No matter for us insular Britons that in China they hold loving retrospectives of his work. Or that there are three museums devoted to his oeuvre in Saudi Arabia. Or that Iranian mullahs were so furious about his Gulf war paintings that they wanted to pay Vicari £5m to destroy them. Or that Vicari is the official painter for Interpol and the CRS, France's much-hated elite police force. Or that he numbers former subjects as varied as Vladimir Putin and Jonathan Aitken as close friends. No matter at all. In Britain, if you get out the cuttings file on this French-based Welshman the vast majority of stories begin "Britain's least-known but highest-paid painter Andrew Vicari..." He doesn't get a mention in Who's Who.

Redshark wrote:Loving Vincent: how to make a movie using 65,000 oil paintings

Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, and produced by Oscar-winning Polish production company BreakThru Films, Loving Vincent is a biopic about the artist Vincent Van Gogh’s final days. Set in 1890, the story is told entirely through his characters and landscapes, using 120 of Van Gogh’s famous works as key frames or points of entry into the story, the reimagined subjects of the paintings relating the Dutch Master's passionate life and mysterious death.

There’s no doubt from the teaser trailer that Loving Vincent will be visually stunning. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished piece, but know that the geek in me (and you) can’t help but sneak a look under the hood. In the interest of serving our dear readers, we investigated how the team at BreakThru Films developed the production techniques to bring this animation/live action hybrid to the screen.

The actors are filmed against a green screen, the photographed action is then turned into black outlines that are projected onto the canvas inside the purpose-built Painting Animation Workstation. Here the artists use Van Gogh paintings as a reference to fill out the rest of the frame. The finished frames are then photographed and used to create a 12fps high-resolution sequence ready for the stringent QC process, with the final sequences going through editorial/grade and finishing. It’s cell-frame animation on steroids; I just hope the finished film doesn’t have the look of a drag-and-drop Photoshop filter.

Remarkably, it took 125 artists fluent in Van Gogh’s style and 1300 litres of oil paint to complete the 65,000 hand painted frames. The artists were recruited from around the globe. British Painter Sarah Wimperis was the only UK-artist chosen to relocate to Gdańsk and animate the well-known impasto swirls and twists into a vortex of moving frames.

So made in a Polish sweatshop… :mrgreen:

The only other example I know of is the El Mercenario series (~ a dozen comic books) by Vicente Segrelles, all painted in oil. Kind of medieval fantasy:
