This Jean-Michel Basquiat painting was purchased for $110,000,000 by billionaire Yusaku Maezawa. All things that were mentioned in the previous sentence are significant but the most significant thing is the work. Do you think Basquiat had any idea that this painting would sell for 110 million dollars, 15 years after the painting was complete. I don't think he cared. He just wanted to paint, because it was his passion. Basquiat was not being paid at the time for this painting. No one told him paint and be paid for it. I watched the documentary that was based on his life. The movie tells a story of a man that had a passion turn into success. Success is the result of PASSION. Please find your passion and execute. Once the execution happens then comes success and then the financial gain as well. Do What You Love!
