One Direction's Harry Buys a Banksy

  • 1 min read

British pop band heart-throb Harry Styles has taken his first baby steps into the world of art collecting. The 18 year old has recently ordered £100,000 worth of limited edition prints to hang in his recently purchased £3 million East London home. An art trader told the Daily Mail, “We’ve had a call from a dealer who says Harry is looking for investment art , but modern and funky”.

It is believed that Harry has been sent a portrait of Kate Moss by graffiti artist Banksy. Of all the Banksy prints released, Kate Moss has consistently seen the highest auction records. In 2006 A set of 6 sold for £50,400. Then in 2008, a single print from the original edition sold at Bonhams for £96,000. The Kate Moss print came in two editions; the original edition of 50, and a colourways edition, a set of 6 different colour combination Kates.

It will be interesting to see whether Harry continues to invest his One Direction fortune in fine art and if this is the just the beginning of an enviable contemporary collection...
