ELTON JOHN: THIS DAMIEN HIRST PINK SPLATTERED AUDI IS WORTH A FORTUNE
Elton John is auctioning off this one of a kind Audi A1 that has been custom painted by the impossibly popular and “wealthiest living artist,” Damien Hirst. This particular Audi model won’t be available to the general public for months. Among other things, Hirst is famous for “spin paintings” and he did the same to this car. Despite Hirst’s obsession with “death,” Elton has assured art collecting bidders that the vehicle is “road legal and safe.” Since works by Hirst have sold for twenty million dollars, it will be interesting to see how much money Elton’s AIDS charity will benefit from this art inspired auction. We wish Elton would donate some of the money to women’s charities.
