Celebrity Art Collectors – From Kylie to Madonna

Celebrity Art Collectors – From Kylie to Madonna

madonna300.jpgHaving a celebrity purchase one of their artworks is a sure fire way for the value of an artist’s work to skyrocket so keeping an eye on what artist’s celebrities are purchasing works by is definitely worth while. Over the years I have received heaps of notifications and tips on purchases of art by celebrities so I thought that I would go through my archives and make a list of some of the celebrities and the artist’s whose work they have purchased.

  17. very good infotmation
    Thanks

  18. I own two painting from Shozo Nagano.He was internationally famous.The two paintings are thtree dementional an spiritual.When he was a teenager he was several miles from ground zero.When the atom bomb went off he was on the correct side of a basement.He watched several of his friends vaporized an shadowed on the wall.He was on medication for years for tramatic stress.His art work was like meditation an he finally stopped taking medication.The two paintings I own are his spiritual visualation of what happened to the people that were vaporized by Atomic Bombs.I am aware of this information because his Gallery was in Jim Thorpe for many years.I live only 25 miles from Jim Thorpe.Me an Shozo meet numerous times.We had many interesting conversations

  19. Nick should I send you pictures of the paintings by e-mail.

  20. Nick you seem like a great guy.How can we move forward to sell these pieces of art work.I am very confident that when Madonna sees them.Because they are very spiritual she would be interested in buying them.I would use the capitol to create numerous drug an alcohol rehabs.It will save millions of lives.Many of our children are addicted to drugs.Nick I have been active in a recovery program for 27 years.Your fantastic web-site an brilliant mind I will honestly use the capitol to help our country get back on track.

  21. Good stuff here, indeed!

    • Nick I am very confident when you post the pictures of the art work from Shozo Nagano.Steve Martin will have a artattack

  22. Some paintings by Australian artist Sian Tiksom : konstsian.blogspot.com ,which I have heard some celebrities buy. How much are they likely to have paid and which celebrity got which painting? Also is it true that Angelina Jolie had a painting of Brad Pitt commissioned recently?

  23. Today august 6 in 1945.That was when the atom bomb was dropped on Japan.That should inspire a wealthy art collector to purchase the two paintings from Shozo Nagano.Because I explained that these two paintings are his spiritual vision of all the people in Japan that were vaporized by the atomic bombs.This art work is as emotional as mona lisa.Which I truly feel this art work is priceless.

  24. Nick i was surfing on the internet.I saw that the famous actor an comedian Steve Martin bought some of Shozo Naganos art work.He has a funny name for his website.Its called an ART ATTACK.Nick Steve Martin is on your list of art collectors.If you can contact him.I am very confident when he sees pictures of the beautiful paintings I bought off Shozo Nagano.Steve Martin would purchase them.

  25. Kylie Minogue is a world well-known star as being one of the big guests in a spectacular $30 million mega-party in front an array of Hollywood stars at the opening of the multi-billion dollar Atlantis Palms Hotel in Dubai. She is a very good performer.

  26. Nick I am goimg to mail out to you pictures of shozo naganos artwork.

  27. Nick,I love reading about Celebrity art collectors,.. I have another artist you should add to your list, Portugal Abstract & Mixed Media Artist Cristina Canas, she has been collected & commissioned by Jesus Luz, a present for galpal Madonna, Sean Connery , Sylvester Stallone, Diane Keaton, Steve Martin, Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie. I suggest getting your hands on as many of her paintings as you can….good investment, they are bound be skyrocket in value very soon. “Feel The Art Beat..”
