In May the founder of on­line fash­ion mall Zo­zo­town pur­chased an un­ti­tled 1982 paint­ing by Jean-Michel Basquiat for $110.5 mil­lion, a record price for the artist. Maezawa lent the piece to the Brook­lyn Mu­seum in New York for a show early this year. He says he plans to even­tu­ally build a mu­seum in his home­town of Chiba to ex­hibit his col­lec­tion, which also in­cludes works by Jeff Koons, Pi­casso and Andy Warhol.
