Forget the banana! Popeye’s taped a sandwich to a wall and are selling it for $120K

I don’t always get art, but I always get that art can be expensive.  Take for example, the banana taped to a wall…

The talk of the town in Miami right now is Maurizio Cattelan’s “Comedian,” a banana 🍌 duct taped to the wall. Two have already sold for $120,000 at Perrotin 😉 read more, including about the banana my husband, @nnddmmyy, hung on his dorm wall for two years, on Artnet News, link in bio @artnet @galerieperrotin @mauriziocattelan @artbasel #art #conceptualart #banana #sculpture #artbasel #artbaselmiamibeach #artbaselmiami #artfair #artgallery #artwork #whatisart #isthisart #miami #miamibeach #florida #miamiflorida #mauriziocattelan #perrotin #galerieperrotin #artist #bananapeel #ducttape #artnetnews #artcollector #vippreview #artjournalism #artjournalist #openingday #artgallery #gallery #artworld

Someone paid $250,000 for this fruit taped to a wall.  Well, Popeyes is jumping on the meme train with their own work of art…

When these sandwiches first came out, I wouldn’t have been shocked if someone paid that $120,003.99 for the sandwich.  Art is weird!
