Johnny Depp Makes £3m In Hours Through Sales of His Art (Complete News)

The sale of Johnny Depp’s first art collection brought in about £3 million in just a few hours.

Within hours of posting about the sale on Instagram, Depp had sold 780 pieces of art through Castle Fine Art’s 37 galleries, including one in London’s Covent Garden.

In the Friends And Heroes collection, he draws pictures of people who have inspired him, like Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones and Elizabeth Taylor from Hollywood.

The 59-year-old said, “I’ve always used art to show how I feel.”

“My paintings are a big part of my life, but I kept them to myself and didn’t show them to many people. No one should put themselves in a box.”

The actor said that he used his art, which also showed Al Pacino and Bob Dylan, to “reflect on those who matter most to me, like my family, friends, and people I admire.”

On Thursday, all 780 pieces were sold within a few hours. A single framed photograph sold for £3,950, and a portfolio of four photographs sold for £14,950.

Depp’s Instagram post, which said only “NOW AT #CASTLEFINEART,” brought so many people to the gallery’s website that it crashed.

‘Pop Art With Feeling’

In a press release, the gallery called the actor’s work “pop art with feeling” that was “at the intersection of pop art and street art.”
The gallery has been talking with Mr. Depp for a long time about putting on an exhibition of his work and selling it. They expect to do more of this in the future.

Last month, Mr. Depp’s high-profile court case against his ex-wife Amber Heard in the US came to an end.

A jury decided that an article Heard wrote for the Washington Post in 2018 about her experiences as a survivor of domestic abuse was false and unfair, and they gave Depp $15m (£12m) in damages to cover his losses and as punishment.

Heard won one of her three counterclaims when she proved that Depp’s press agent lied about her. The jury gave her £1.5 million ($2 million) in damages.

The case came after his UK libel case against the Sun newspaper, which he lost in November 2020 because an article called him a “wife beater.” The judge said that what was in the article was “substantially true” based on what was in the paper.

Mr. Depp raised nearly £660,000 ($800,000) for charity by selling a series of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) called Never Fear Truth. The tokens showed pictures of his close friends and heroes and were called “Never Fear Truth.”
