Half a Billion Dollars for a Painting Would be a World-Record

SINGAPORE, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It is the most powerful painting in the world. The work is extremely thought-provoking with a depiction of the human brain in an abstract form against a surreal background. The Brain, an acrylic on canvas that measures 1.5 meters by 1.2 meters, will be up on the market for GBP 333,000,000 (over 500 Million US Dollars) from the 12th of December this year. Kean Hughes, a fine arts dealer from London concurred, "The Brain is simply beautiful."

K. Tilani is the 20-year-old Singaporean artist who has been painting intricate pieces since the age of 6. He studied in a business faculty for 3-years and secured a place in a local university after excelling academically. Initially following the footsteps of his father who is a trader, he is now making a mark in the art world. The Brain is the first work for sale by Tilani; after being intrigued by the intricacies of the human brain, Tilani attempts to convey its power through this painting. When asked why he painted The Brain, Tilani replied, "The Brain is the most powerful element on this planet. We have achieved milestones through innovation, yet, how could anyone claim that it is simply plain grey in colour?"

The Brain has spurred interest from several parties. Alexander Prado, Chairman and President of One Art Inc, said that "K. Tilani is the Salvador Dali of the twenty-first century. His unique style illustrates every drop of passion and thought poured into abstract. The Brain could fetch millions for its beauty alone. K. Tilani is truly driven to become a force in the art world." A fine arts professional from Galerie Bruno Bischofberger who declined to be named, added that The Brain is really impressive and can fetch an equally impressive price tag. So far, Tilani had declined all of the offers for The Brain.

With an outstanding combination of colours, The Brain is a masterpiece that might redefine art itself. Its artist, who burns with passion and derives his energy from art, is a naturally-talented soul. After all, even behind The Mona Lisa was a brain.
