The Masterpiece closing painting work of the 2013 Dubai Dollar Project - CLO$ING DIRHAM$ & DOLLAR$ featuring the signed $1 bills from the winners of the $64,000 of art and the artists transition from a golfing role to a painting role.

A key piece that captures Wheat's transition from the corporate world into the art world was not without sacrifice, as detailed within....

Here's the humble closing ceremony, celebrated by those that knew, the dot joiners, the connectors....

 

 

It's explained here by the Artist a couple of years on down at The Meydan Hotel where he remains Artist in residence to this day...

 With those who attended the closing ceremony and received their $1,400 prints (only 6 weren't claimed) along with the $20,000 masterpiece ' Indulgence' .....

 That was given away for a $1 making it the $64,000 question - what is it with the number 64!?

 Few at the time realised how this giveaway trigger positioned his original artwork in the market as, at the time, a neophyte, crashing into the Artworld uninvited, The Gorilla in the room!

It's wasn't the end, it was just the start....
