Who’s sorry now for sneering at all those arty people? Takashi Murakami says throw the ‘tude when someone offers to give you $15.1 million for fake ejaculate, buddy!
And to think he earned it by “express[ing] hopelessness” while thinking “art is unnecessary”. Maybe he’ll spend a little of that money on his website? For man does not live by Google Ads alone, Takashi.
The big seller of the night however was Francis Bacon’s Triptych 1976, pictured below. It sold for $86.3 million.
All of which reminds me – damn, I’m poor.
