Kind of surprising anyone would pay for this.
A 2019 artwork called “Triptych of Dipsticks” has sold for an all-time record low of 75 cents at New York auction house Sotheby’s overnight. The work features Australian Prime Minister ScoMo, British Prime Minister BoJo, and U.S. President Sideshow Bob.
The price pipped the previous record low set by the 2018 oil on canvas work “Diseases of the Digestive System”.
Australian investor and collector Pete Gibbons, the buyer, said “I’m having a bonfire tonight and I didn’t have enough rubbish so paying 75 cents to see a trio of mendacious goons go up in flames seemed worth it. Then we’ll see who’s inflammatory.”
