Carmelo Anthony is currently augmenting his art collection, a recent venture. Seated alongside Tommy Hilfiger and Swizz Beatz at the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards auction at the Plaza Hotel on Tuesday night, Anthony dished $27,000 for a Muhammad Ali print. Renowned photographer and filmmaker Gordon Parks created the gelatin silver print, Muhammad Ali in Training, Miami, Florida, 1966.
“I am big into the art world. I am still learning, I’ve bought a lot of different artists,” Anthony told the New York Post. “As far as collecting just one, I am trying to take my time and get some art I feel genuine towards.”
