Taking into account the abysmal artistic quality, six-figure price, and notoriety of its creator, could this be considered the worst art in American history? Tampa’s Bay News 9 reports that George Zimmerman is selling his signed paintings on eBay and bidding is skyrocketing:
It appears George Zimmerman has turned to painting, and is selling his own, original artwork on eBay not one week after prosecutors dropped domestic violence charges against him.
Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., has confirmed the auction is real, and said the painting is, indeed, the work of his brother, who was acquitted of murder in July for the 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
The painting’s starting bid was set at $50, plus an additional $40 for expedited shipping from Sanford, according to the auction page. As of 10:50 p.m. Monday, the leading bid was $99,966.
