In his résumé, Johnny Depp now lists sold-out painter. Depp displayed 780 of his works in the Castle Fine Art gallery in London on Thursday, and they all sold out almost instantly, netting him an additional USD 3.6 million.
The 59-year-old actor has been making news over the past few weeks after winning his significant defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard.
Four pictures of Bob Dylan, Elizabeth Taylor, Al Pacino, and Keith Richards are included in his first official collection, "Friends & Heroes," which also bears their names.
According to People, the gallery discussed how Johnny drew inspiration for his debut collection from "people he has known well, and who have inspired him as a person."
They added, "Each image is an intimate reflection of their character in Johnny's eyes; a portrayal of how they have revealed themselves to him.
They Further said, "From his dear friend Keith Richards, who inspired the mannerisms of the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow, to Bob Dylan, whose creative influence on the artist is seen in his vivid and immortal portrayal by Johnny."
In a statement published by the gallery, Depp explained his perspective on his work.
He said, "I've always used painting to communicate my sentiments and to reflect on those who mean most to me, including my family, friends, and individuals I respect."
He went on, "My life is shown in my paintings, but I kept them private and kept my options limited. No one should ever set oneself limitations."
Depp earlier posted a photo of himself seated in between his paintings on Instagram.
