The 15 Richest Living Artists

Last week we reported about David Choe being paid in 2005 in stock by Facebook, for painting murals in their offices. That stock might become worth 200 Million USD, after Facebook’s IPO and official stock market listing. Complex took a look at the richest living artists, and it is interesting to see where Choe ranks in there now.

Here is the complete list:

  1. Damien Hirst – 1 Billion USD
  2. Jeff Koons – 500 Million USD
  3. Jasper Johns – 300 Million USD
  4. David Choe – 200 Million USD
  5. Andre Vicari – 142 Million USD
  6. Takashi Murakami – 100 Million USD
  7. Anish Kapoor – 85 Million USD
  8. Antony Gormley – 50 Million USD
