Being a global superstar allows you that extra bit of financial comfort, giving you the opportunity to go out and buy some things you have always dreamed of. Some stars simply love to shop, others enjoy collecting cars and there are some who love to buy paintings. Here we have a look at a few of the stars who enjoy investing in art.
One celebrity, who has been around for so long that it is no surprise that he can afford to spend a bit of cash on a bit of art work, is veteran Hollywood actor Steve Martin. Steve owns a wide variety of different pieces of art work, with the likes of Picasso, Georgia O'Keefe and Roy Lichtenstein among his collection.
While Steve Martin clearly favours the more classic pieces of art, by some of the biggest names to have ever lived, there are those who prefer the more modern form of art. Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt, along with his partner Angelina Jolie, are keen admirers of the works of Banksy and have a few pieces by the mysterious artist.
Then there is musician Elton John, who is clearly a huge fan of art, as a look at his collection would give away. Elton has a whole host of different pieces of art work from the likes of Damien Hirst, Picasso, Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Matisse.
There are plenty more celebrity art lovers, with plenty more artists but we want to know who your favourite artists is?
