Styles invests in gun sculpture

Harry Styles has added to his modern art collection with a controversial handgun sculpture, according to reports.

The One Direction star has invested around £100,000 in artworks and has snapped up new pieces including a model of a gun behind a fire alarm, says the Daily Mirror.

Harry's new sculpture by Ben Turner is said to have cost around £5,000 and he apparently purchased a couple of the artist's giant comic book collages, worth £20,000 each, too.

Ben told the newspaper: "I did a series of fire alarms with weapons in called Every Home Should Have One. Harry had one with a gun inside. I wasn't actually at the art fair and I didn't do the deal, but I'm fairly sure that Harry would have got a little bit of a discount.

"I think he bought a couple of my collage works that are made out of original comics and show giant pictures of firemen, relating to the 9/11 memorial.

"My pieces tend to give a statement - quite a sharp jab. Maybe that's what Harry likes about them."

The Little Things singer is worth a reported £5 million but One Direction movie producer Morgan Spurlock said he and his bandmates were spending their money wisely.

"Harry has plenty of money," he confirmed. "They have bought property, they've invested in gold. They are all being smart."
