BETWEEN playing at the Big Day Out and posting controversial photos on social media, US rapper Snoop Lion managed to fit in art class during his recent stop on the Gold Coast.
He put brush to canvas while staying at Palazzo Versace last month, with the piece being sold to a hotel regular who also loves Snoop Lion/Dogg.
The Bulletin reports, Victorian man Rio Nugara shelled out $10,200 for the art work which was placed on bidding website eBay.
The painting attracted 30 bids from eight bidders in 10 days, with all proceeds of the charity auction to go to the Leukaemia Foundation.
The artwork, signed by Snoop, was posted on his social media account of more than 1.6 million followers during his Versace stay.
Also appearing on his Instagram page was a photo of his breakfast fruit platter from the exclusive Main Beach hotel, alongside what appeared to be a bowl of cannabis buds.
