Johnny Depp Sells 780 Pieces of Art for $3.6 Million in just a few hours

Johnny Depp exceeded expectations with the online sale of his debut art collection by making more than $3.6 million within hours.

The pieces are part of Depp’s Friends & Heroes collection, featuring four portraits of Bob Dylan, Elizabeth Taylor, Al Pacino, and Keith Richards. They were created in a bold, graphic style and accented by gestural mark-making that outlines sections of the portrait.

Depp shared some images of his artwork on Instagram.

For the collection, Depp focused on “people he has known well, and who have inspired him as a person,” the gallery said in a statement. 

The artistic influence even reflects his professional life. “From his dear friend Keith Richards,” Castle Fine Art continues, “who inspired the mannerisms of the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow, to Bob Dylan, whose creative influence on the artist is seen in his vivid and immortal portrayal by Johnny.”

Each limited edition portrait is listed online for $3,973, with the set of four on sale for $15,040.

“I’ve always used art to express my feelings, and to reflect on those who matter most to me, like my family, friends and people I admire,” Depp said in a statement, according to People. “My paintings surround my life, but I kept them to myself and limited myself. No one should ever limit themselves.”
