Johnny Depp displayed 780 of his first official art collection 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 portraits 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 emphasized how Johnny drew inspiration for his debut collection from “people he has known well, and who have inspired him as a person.”

They continued, “Each image is an intimate reflection of their character in Johnny’s eyes; a portrayal of how they have revealed themselves to him. 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.”

As for Depp’s take on his art, he shared in a statement posted by the gallery,

“I’ve always used art to express my feelings, and to reflect on those who matter most to me, like my family, friends and people I admire.” He continued, “My paintings surround my life, but I kept them to myself and limited myself. No one should ever limit themselves.”¬†

Depp previously took to Instagram and shared a snap of himself sitting in front of his portraits hanging on wall.
