The Collection of Selim Varol
Get excited if you’re in Spain at the moment as Turkish-born German collector Selim Varol has taken his impressive collection to the Contemporary Art Center of Malaga. Traveling from Dusseldorf (covered) to Malaga, At Home I’m A Tourist is a massive exhibition of over 15,000 works highlighting many of the artists featured on AM regularly including Banksy, KAWS, ZEVS, Shepard Fairey, Audrey Kawasaki, FUTURA, JR, Josh Keyes, and Faile to name just a few. If you’re fortunate enough to be in Spain in the next few months be sure to stop by as this show which will be on view until June 16th.

Amazing stuff :notworthy:

- but he's missing Lifted from his Keyes collection though (seems like a surprise omission)- but when he has the collection he has (across all these amazing artists) i am sure a few exceptions are acceptable. :wink:

how much do you think this wall cost's? Just the prints, not the frames?

I may be in the minority but the McNett woodcuts are easily my favorites from the entire collection.

My collection is probably worth 4 times what i paid. I can think of 5 pieces worth over £5000 that cost me a tenth of that. Any rich boy can buy a collection of en vogue art.

Rich or not, his collection is amazing!

If I were rich, I would NOT be buying vinyl toys or art prints.....kudos to him for not filling himself full of cocaine and hookers! :clap:

Congrats on the award, Selim!
