its not the question how good are you in painting, you need someone to admire it or atleast understand it (in case of modern art), then only you will make money. Not just by painting

It pays in lot other ways to have his painting. No one is worried how you interpret it.

The car has been termed by Mr Hussain as a peice of art and that is why he bought it. It also has something to do with his next project for which he would ask A.R.Rehman to do the background score off. I would say young at 93, and the oldest customer of the Veyron. They also mentioned that there are only three Veyrons sold in U.A.E. and one of them is this one.
I am not doubting the fact that Mr.M.F.Hussain can afford a Veyron, but artist Tyeb Mehta had said when his own acclaimed painting 'Mahishasura' had sold for a record $1.6 million at Christie's in 2005, that it was time for his art auctioneers to rejoice more than him when it came to the price at which it was sold.

Mods beware: This thread is soon gonna be bombarded with post's from possibly all members saying "I wanna become a painter!" or "How I wish I was a painter!".

So he's gifted it to his son then. For a moment I was wondering how he would paint Madhuri Dixit's portrait while driving the Veyron at the same time!

Anything that man cannot understand is termed as abstract. Some people are making a living..err.. killing, out of abstract art.
The ones geting killed are the onces attempting to interpret the abstract art they just bought.
Makbool Fida Husain is plain lucky.
I saw an elephant doing painting on discovery channel whos abstract art is better than M.F's. Tough luck though for the pachyderm.

That elephant was the most famous inmate of Phoenix zoo, Arizona US. I wanted to go see it but then found that it died few years back.

So is he the only Indian (I mean Indian Citizen) who owns a Veyron in the world?

I know there are many NRIs who would be owning Veyrons and Enzos but haven't heard of any Indian who lives in India owning one (except for the Phantom Veyron which some people say exists but no one has ever seen in India!)

Yes agree with you Neo as paintings are also bought as investments . Its another way for the rich to park their unaccounted wealth . between a veyron and a Hussain the later is a much better buy as the veyrons values going to depreciate while a hussains value is only going to go higher . But a Hussain on a veyron ? Hmmm thats going to be tough evaluating that

wonder if he plans to drive the bugatti bare-footed
guessing that he will equip the vehicle with a chauffeur though - but will relax bare-footed in the comfort of the back seat while possibly sipping something suitable in an elegant long stemmed glass!
