Adrien Brody

Drops $20,000

... On Monopoly Man

EXCLUSIVE

adrien_brody_alec_monopoly_rolls_royce_launchThere's a reason rich people buy expensive art ... they've run out of everything else to buy -- which is exactly how Adrien Brody blew $20,000 this week.

Sources tell TMZ, the actor stopped by a popular Hollywood art gallery called Lab Art on Tuesday to check out new works by famed street artist Alec Monopoly ... and he was so blown away by the paintings, he purchased 5 pieces worth roughly $20,000 total.

Adrien went to the gallery to check on his old Rolls-Royce which he donated to Alec, who turned it into an art piece ... and Adrien went nuts over several paintings.

Check out the Rolls in the pics.  Pretty cool actually.

As for Adrien -- looks like he just landed himself squarely on "Luxury Tax."

Rich people buy expensive art because they ran out of stuff to buy? Honestly Tmz, what's w/ the childish quips? As an actor who wasn't always where he was, Adrien is supporting a fellow artist. Not all celebs waste money on drugs, diamond teeth and other ridiculous self-serving crap.

Whomever wrote this is obviously ignorant to the value and investment of fine art. 5 pieces for $20,000?! That is average to low priced as art goes. Art is one of the only things that not only holds but gains value in a volatile market.

You think painting all that childish s**t on the Rolls makes it look "pretty cool?" Whatever, you're as weird as Brody if that's the case.
