Festival starts in


In March 2015, three paintings by top-selling artist Matt Jaeborn were auctioned at Christie's in London. These paintings are surprising: they are painted by numbers made when the artist was a child. The tryptic sells for $14 million -- for three paint by number! Who is behind this crazy purchase? The major collectors? The Russian mafia? The painter himself? A fascinating investigation that uncompromisingly addresses the excesses of contemporary art.
