People have been wondering who purchased the breath-taking and expensive mural created by artist Kerry James Marshall, but all speculation has been put to rest.

The monumental painting named “Past Times” that symbolize a story centered around Black experiences was auctioned off on Wednesday to its buyer Mr. Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs according to Marshall’s gallerist Jack Shainman who revealed the information to The New York Times.

The sale is recorded as the most ever paid for the work of an actual living Black American artist.

“I know that this work has found a home in a collection with purpose and an eye toward preserving legacy—that of Sean Combs, and that means a lot,” Shainman told NYT. The dealer added that Diddy first discovered the beautiful mural through hip-hop record producer Swizz Beatz.

The director of art museum “The Broad” Joanne Heyler, told the news outlet, “We weren’t the buyer, but wish we were.”
