Throughout this month of December, the married celebrity couple Justin and Hailey Bieber have been receiving bids, through Paddle8, for some seventeen pieces of art that they’re selling.
Having curated the sale themselves, proceeds from this venture are to be forwarded to charity. Specifically, Inner-City Arts and LIFT Los Angeles will receive the funds, with these two being charities whose concentration is focused on combating poverty.
The artwork up for sale included pieces from artists such as Miss Zukie, Jason Zante, Patch Whiskey, Buff Monster, Greg Mike, Dalek, and Ryan Hewett.
There are also some 3D pieces on the auction list, including works from Pablo Dona, Fidia Falaschetti, and OG Slick. And how could the Biebers set up an art sale and not include a piece from their dear friend Virgil Abloh?
As is the case with auctions, it is difficult to determine exactly how much a piece will sell for. However, Paddle8, the online auction house, has valued the items and given their expected price range.
A Handsome Price Range
As such, Justin and Hailey’s pieces expect to fall within the price range of $275 to as high as $14,400. This most expensive painting in the collection is by Ryan Hewett, and Architectural Digest reports that the auction has received multiple bids for this particular piece of art.
Instagram has over the years been Justin Bieber’s favored social media site, and it was via this platform that the singer announced his art sale.
If you’ve been keeping up with JB, then you know that the 25-year-old sure does love his art. Time and again, he’s showed off pieces he owns to his millions of followers, and some of the pieces being auctioned off feature in several of his previous posts.
Earlier on in October, the Love Yourself singer treated his followers to a virtual tour of his home with Hailey, and in the process, revealing that they’ve fitted art in literally almost any space available.
Pieces by KAWS were all over, and Takashi Murakami wasn’t left behind either. You do know that the Japanese artist’s expertise was all over the 2007 Kanye West album Graduation, right?
There was also a bespoke Idiot Box Art piece, paying homage to Bieber’s Drew House clothing brand.
At the time, Justin admitted that it was their intention as a couple to sell their house, along with the furniture in it. However, the singer left it unclear whether rest of the art was available for purchase.
Renting Out in Toluca Lake
The lovely couple got married in September last year, celebrating their union with a second ceremony the following month. At the time, they were living in Toluca Lake, paying $100,000 every month as rent.
Come March, they acquired this Beverly Hills home, parting with $8.5 million for it. The 1930s Monterey Colonial home was previously owned by Charles Infante, the production designer who renovated the home before selling it to the Biebers.
The brick home boasts 5 bedrooms and a further 7 bathrooms, along with a family room, and an enviable bright kitchen. It also comes with a theatre, library, wet bar, and wine cellar with a touch of Martinique print. Given how much JB loves art, this wallpaper must have attracted him quite a bit.
