This "Black Athlete" (1982) by Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of few standout artists at recent auctions, was available for $5.5 million at Van de Weghe's gallery's booth during the last Basel Miami Art Fair in December 2008.

To my knowledge it was unsold which is good because IMHO Basquiat like Koon's works are scam, fantasies that should not go beyond some thousands of dollars.

I think that one day in 20 or 30 years the Contemporary Art maket will become the Modern Art market and that prices will collapse. People will look at Basquiat's and Koon's works and will start saying to themselves :"our grandparents paid 5 million bucks for that piece of s...t ? My goodness ! They were out of their mind !"

Take my poll and let us know how much you would give for that picture by Jean Michel.
