RM regularly updates fans on his art adventures through his personal Instagram, posting his trips to art galleries and pieces he has on display in his home.
RM has shared his love for art with ARMY on many occasions; recently RM documented his travels to Switzerland to attend the famous art festival, Art Basel, through his individual BTS vlog.
RM revealed he had wanted to go to Art Basel for a long time and made the long trip solely for the festival.
In his latest pictures on Instagram, RM showcased his pristine home with artwork carefully displayed in the background. At the forefront of the photos was his large glass sculpture, titled Untitled (“But the boomerang that returns is not the same one I threw.”), by American artist Roni Horn.
Fans were able to track the unique piece and discovered it had previously been sold through the Xavier Hufkens Gallery in Belgium in 2021 for a staggering $1.2 million USD.
ARMYs hilariously reacted to the price tag, stating RM’s house must not be where the BTS members gather to drink with how much his art pieces are worth.
Namjoon's home is deff not the one they get drunk at lol

Others noted that they forget the BTS members are rich until details like the price of their belongings are uncovered.

Fans also noticed a touching detail about the glass sculpture — it was made in 2013, the same year BTS debuted.
His impressive collection has undoubtedly grown over the years, and while the price of the collection is shocking, you would never know from RM’s humble personality that fans love so much.
