Johnny Depp Preps Basquiat Art Collection for Auction

Posted Friday June 10, 2016 8:32 AM GMT

He’s gearing up for a complicated divorce battle with his soon-to-be-ex-wife Amber Heard and Johnny Depp looks to be freeing up some of his fortune by putting nine Jean-Michel Basquiat paintings up for sale.

The “Edward Scissorhands” stud’s collection will be auctioned off at Christie’s Auction House in London on June 29th and 30th, and Depp sounds pained to be letting the pieces go.

In a press release, Johnny stated, "Nothing can replace the warmth and immediacy of Basquiat's poetry, or the absolute questions and truths that he delivered. The beautiful and disturbing music of his paintings, the cacophony of his silence that attacks our senses, will live far beyond our breath."
