     Are you interested in art or do you consider yourself to be an artistic
     person? Well, if you become extremely rich in the future you might want
     to spend a huge amount of money on a famous work of art and display it

     in your hometown just as Japanese billionaire, Yusaku Maekawa has done
     recently.


     Maekawa,  an  E-commerce  entrepreneur  outbid  a  whole  host  of  rivals  in  a  fiercely
     fought auction held by Sotheby’s auctioneers. The work which many were trying to

     buy was that of Jean-Michel Basquait. The untitled artwork is a depiction of a skull-like
     figure and cost Maekawa…wait for it...$110.5 million.


     Maekawa said “When I saw this painting, I was struck with so much excitement and
     gratitude for my love of art”. He continued to state that he would show this artwork in
     his home area of Chiba, in Japan.


     So if you are interested in art, and have the money…would you spend a lot of money
     on a painting?
