Let's Go Shop @ Warhol's and Hockney's

(top) As two bunnies prepare to attack, Andy Warhol remains unfazed atop his giant banana.

One of Andy Warhol's silver wigs, which was estimated to go for between $4,000 and $6,000, sold for $10,800 at Christie's yesterday. The wig came complete with the toupee tape which Warhol used to stick it to his head. You may not be able to get the wig anymore but you might still be available to get the action figure from Kid Robot. Other Warhol items of note at the Christie's sale: "A 1977 Polaroid photo of Muhammad Ali, signed by Warhol, sold for $19,200. And a Warhol Polaroid of Mick Jagger from 1975 went for a WHOPPING $15,600." That's fuckin' luxurious I say!

Warhol's belongings are definitely breaking records, and becoming priced possesion items like Picasso. If I was rich I wouldn't mind owning a pair of his undies he wears everyday.That'll be like Warhol, how Weird and artistic. Yeah, I'll have one and another...for display, duh! What were ya thinking? Anyway, back to reality, Warhol personal items will be sold gradually. Warhol's painting are not be missed, as a big fan of Warhol's masterpieces, I have a book and posters of is pop art. The previous record for a Hockney painting was $3.4 million for his work "A Neat Lawn".
