Pamela Anderson: ‘I collect pop artists and they collect me’

In a column for the FT‘s “How to Spend It,” Pamela Anderson, the actress, creative director of social-media site Jasmin, and art collector dishes about her taste in art and her experience as a muse for Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, and Jeff Koons.

“So you could say that while I collect pop art, pop artists also collect me. Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Jeff Koons – that’s good company. And David LaChapelle and Sante D’Orazio” she says, noting that she believes in retrospect that her many Playboy covers were also pop art.

As for the art world itself, Anderson approaches it with a light touch. Unlike some of her friends, who “manipulate the market a little bit” by bidding up or offering works by artists they own at charity auctions, she doesn’t collect for investment or profit. “It is a little corrupt, I guess. But like everything else, I don’t know, it’s just part of living a sexy life. It’s a little bit Wild Westy.”
