Rambo star Sylvester Stallone is generating some press at Art Basel Miami after selling two paintings for $90,000. The 63-year-old action star unveiled a handful of broad-chested pieces with Zurich-based Gmurzynska Gallery, including a rough rendering of a decrepit, aging superhero. Painted in his post-Rocky V phase, “Toxic Superman” is about the “ups and downs of Hollywood,” according to Stallone, who goes on to tell The Art Newspaper about the hardship of being a man, noting that “the US working male is a dying breed.” |Daily Mail|
