An oil painting titled History + Hope = Change by distinguished African-American artist Gilbert Young is all set to go under the hammer, and is trying to garner bids from all over Asia! After a bid of $5.5 million in Singapore, the painting will attract bids in Mumbai, India after which it will embark on its journey forward to Kenya, Hong Kong and the United States. The painting is expected to fetch anything between $7-10 million.
