Due to his impending divorce from Amber Heard, Johnny Depp has announced that he is auctioning off several paintings he owns. The paintings were done by Jean-Michael Basquiat and will be sold by Christie’s auction house. Depp spent 25 years collecting his paintings and is planning to let nine of them go in an auction. The majority of the nine paintings were done in 1981. Depp has said that his paintings and his music will “live far beyond our breath.”
The actor has also praised Basquiat’s poetry, saying that its warmth and immediacy can’t be replaced.
