~RAPPER KING BRINGS HOME . . THE BASQUIAT
turns out, homeboy Jay Z was the anonymous buyer of BASQUIAT’S 1982 ‘MECCA’ last week, at SOTHEBY’S.
he plunked down $4.5 million, and that’s considered a ‘steal’ .. as there was no real ‘bidding’ war for it.
that could be because .. the acrylic & oil stick painting was on the minimal side ?
personally that’s what I think makes it over-the-top great.
JEAN MICHEL BASQUIAT .. ‘MECCA’.
