This Painting Was Sold For $37,000 in a Charity Auction Last Year. Can You Believe it?

It is widely accepted that art is something not everyone can appreciate. If it can be appreciated by the right people, then it’ll have value. If no one understands what you’re trying to create, then it doesn’t become art. Simple, right?

Sometimes, we see something that even us, as un-arty-farty AF as we are, that we feel just shouldn’t, couldn’t be art. 

This is one of those times.

In April 2016, Angelababy, a popular actress and the wet dream of many 90s kids out there, decided to do something for charity. And it should be something that’s thoughtful, insightful and meaningful.

And what better way to do that than to showcase her inner artist, create a painting and giving meaning to it, right? Well, this is what she came up with.


In a video clip to introduce her artwork, she explained the motivation and meaning behind the painting. The painting is her vision for the future of every child, which consists of a pink sky (to represent the colour of the sky at the most beautiful times of the day–sunrise and sunset), a spaceship and birds to represent life.

The painting was donated to Teach For China’s charity auction where it fetched 18,000 yuan (approx. $37,000).

However, netizens were less than impressed with her efforts and thought that her art wasn’t worth the price tag. In fact, some of her fans also said that while they liked her, her artwork left much to be desired.
