LOOK AT HOW OUR LEO HAS GROWN!

 

Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio is known to be an avid art collector, and is regularly seen attending major art fairs throughout the US. However, according to the Creators Project, rather than gracing the booths at New York’s fairs last week, DiCaprio has spotted his latest acquisition on Instagram and called the gallery to secure the piece.

The Copenhagen-based Gallery Poulsen posted an installation shot of their booth at New York’s PULSE art fair. A sci-fi inspired work, Nachlass(2015), by the Brooklyn artist Jean-Pierre Roy evidently caught the actor’s eye. A gallery employee reportedly confirmed the sale: “Leonardo spotted it on Instagram and bought it over the phone.”

The representative told the Creators Project that the piece was “a speculative work set in a beautiful landscape.”

According to the artist, his work is “often associated with science fiction and the post-apocalyptic.” Expounding on his practice, he added, “Previous work often focused on sublime optical phenomena and massive cataclysmic events as they present situations where the viewer is placed into a moment, where the natural world has reorganized itself into a beautiful, terrifying, and unfamiliar system of forces.”

DiCaprio’s growing collection is said to include artworks ranging fromOscar Murillo to Salvador Dalí. The actor has also orchestrated numerous art-related fundraising events for his eponymous foundation

  1. I want to do this. I want to post our art here on line! Unless, someone wants to have a private viewing, one at a time of our works. Email me if you want to see our paintings. I am slow with new technology and a stressed budget.

    1. Dorothy, if you want to do this, you need to go find some people who can teach you SEO and Social media and how to run a website. MEETUP groups are good places to find these connections. And a web develop, and learn WordPress, and understand internet media, doing this IS NOT EASY.

      All the best,

      Elizabeth
