MISE À DAY
American actor Johnny Depp on Thursday sold a collection of prints he created of Hollywood and rock icons for around £3 million (over £3.5 million). euros) via a British gallery.
Depp wrote on Instagram on Thursday that these prints, made from computer-generated images, were for sale online at Castle Fine Art , which runs a network of galleries in Britain.
The gallery said the collection of prints entitled 'Friends and Heroes' was “a testament to those he knew well and those who inspired him.”
The gallery quoted the actor as saying: “My paintings surround my life, but I kept them to myself and limited myself. Nobody should ever limit themselves.”
The prints represent Bob Dylan, Elizabeth Taylor, Al Pacino or Keith Richards, among others.
The gallery indicated that its website, on which 780 pieces were for sale, had been saturated with requests. Buyers notably paid some 17,800 euros for a set of four framed prints or 4,700 euros for one print.
In June, the actor was awarded ten million dollars in a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, 36. Ms. Heard has appealed.
