A new art exhibition exploring the greed of private space travel is inspired by Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos

1 month ago   |   By Business Insider

Contemporary artist Lincoln Townley is famous for his distinctive portraits of Hollywood royalty.
Townley has just launched his new collection, Universe, which will exhibit in London's Saatchi Gallery in September.
The galactic-themed collection is inspired by the age of private space travel, which Townley says is motivated by "greed, self-publicity, a desire to do things that other people cannot do."
Townley says that prominent tech figures collect his work in the US, and some collectors have already bought works from the Universe collection.
