This one isn’t really about the stock market (let me know if you know of any good stock market related art!!!) but it is about a CRASH and it does involve A LOT OF MONEY!!!

Green Car Crash

Green Car Crash

This one is by Warhol.

Warhol said “Art is what you can get away with,” and the late, great artist’s paintings are still getting away with a fortune. Sold last year by Christie’s, his painting Green Car Crash (Green Burning Car I), from the  Death and Disaster series, this went for $71.7 million dollars. The painting is based on a photograph that appeared in Newsweek magazine from June 3rd, 1963. The photograph depicted the end of a car chase, when a 24-year-old commercial fisherman in Seattle flipped his car, hit a telephone pole, and was ejected from the car forcefully enough to be impaled on, but not immediately killed by, a climbing spike. The mangled car burns in an otherwise mundane residential setting — there’s even a guy crossing the street like it’s nothing special. Seventy-one million for a green-tinted painting of a random photograph, however… that doesn’t happen every day.

For another idea, a PORTRAIT painting of Bernanke might be pretty cool, Portrait Xpress artists can copy any image/PHOTO you send them by hand into a painting- and can do it in any style, eg change below into pop art, put him in a field with US dollars falling from the sky all around him, whatever you like. So you can have cool original art for your flat SO SO easily!!
