I like to think of myself as a creative person, someone who is smart, who is kind, and who is important. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Terrell Grice So imagine how PISSED I was when I found out that a banana sold at Art Basel for $120,000. A freakin' banana. THIS is what it looks like: nytimes.com OK, let's backtrack: The piece is titled Comedian, and it's on display at this year's Art Basel show which takes place in Miami Beach. View this photo on Instagram instagram.com The artist, Maurizio Cattelan, has sold two editions of the piece to French buyers, and the third will be priced at $150,000 and sold to a museum, according to art market website Artnet. Now here's the thing, and I can't stress this enough: It is LITERALLY a banana taped to an empty wall in the art gallery Perrotin. This banana is art...and I am somehow still poor. nytimes.com People really just got money to buy $120,000 bananas?!: Mark Oldman @MarkOldman Question: how much would u pay for a banana duct-taped to a wall? Today at #ArtBaselMiami, a collector forked over $120,000 (for real) to the Perrotin Gallery for this “work” by mischievous artist Maurizio #Cattelan. Don’t worry: there are a few more for sale. #artbasel 10:20 PM - 04 Dec 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite This tweet sums up how I feel. I feel bamboozled: Karla Ortiz @kortizart Me: spends 20+ years laboriously learning my craft. A gallery at Art Basel: BaNaNa-N-dUcT-tApE, MoNeY mE, NoW. *faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaart* Man, this sucks lol https://t.co/NLvdZfNmWw 10:03 AM - 07 Dec 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite This person has the right idea — we're recreating art and paying a bill, dammit: SammyJLee @sammysaway @CBSNews This is my version, created for my children's amusement. I could use some extra money for Christmas 🤞😬 09:55 PM - 06 Dec 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite We're not selfish, you can get our art for half off: John B. Watson aka “Johnny Applegreed” 🍎🍏💰💰💰 @jbwillustration @CBSNews 1/2 Off Sale!!! $60,000 or best offer! 🍎 09:19 PM - 06 Dec 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite This person has asked the question of the century. Make it make sense: Thomas P. Sullivan @ThomasPSulliva2 @CBSNews "Owners can replace the banana as needed." So instead of shelling out $120 K, they could have just duct-taped their own banana to a wall. Hmm. 08:38 PM - 06 Dec 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite We need insurance policies put into place: John Lurie @lurie_john I just taped 4 bananas to my wall and bumped into them. Bruising them badly. Now the insurance company that covers my art owes me $480,000. Hope this holds up in court. https://t.co/PiYE8DxUCY 07:35 AM - 07 Dec 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite ...I can't stand y'all, LOLOLOLOLOL: GifLord @NickSibilla Aight, how much would someone give me for this bag of frozen vegetables taped to the wall?
