Johnny Depp Rakes in $3.6M in Hours Selling His Artwork


Johnny Depp made around £3 million ($3.6 million) within hours by selling pieces from his debut artwork collection, multiple reports say.

The actor announced on Instagram on Thursday that he was selling the art through Castle Fine Art’s 37 gallery, which is headquartered in Birmingham, England.

His post prompted a rush of traffic to the gallery’s website, which caused it to crash briefly, Sky News reported.

The four paintings, entitled “Friends and Heroes,” features pop culture icons Al Pacino, Keith Richards, Bob Dylan, and Elizabeth Taylor, and is created in a pop art style not entirely dissimilar to that of Andy Warhol. And each of the original pieces sold for $18,000 apiece.

All told, the gallery offered 780 prints of the works, and all sold out.
