The Oscar-winning actor Adrein Brody , who also has credits as a director, producer and composer, has added painter to his impressive resumé.
Brody, 43, took a year and a half off from acting to focus on art, and has been showcasing his paintings as of late.
Recently, he auctioned off his “Tiger on Last Legs” artwork for $275,000 at the third-annual Leonardo Dicaprio Foundaitonn Gala in St. Tropez. The actor-turned-painter was in esteemed company as famed pieces from Jeff Koons, Pablo Picasso, Urs Fischer, Olafur Eliasson and Adrian Villar Rojas were also up for bid.
Adrien Brody (born April 14, 1973) received widespread recognition and acclaim after starring in Roman Polanski’s The Pianist (2002), for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor at age 29, making him the youngest actor to win in that category. Brody is also the only male American actor to receive the French César Award.
