    Harry Styles has very interesting (and expensive) taste in art.

    E! News confirms the One Direction crooner spent a good $33,000 on original pieces by artist Hayden Kays, whose work is both provocative and sexual. But Styles didn't purchase artwork featuring any naked bodies or people in the act. Instead, they're just suggestive (and kind of hilarious) typed works.

    "Harry bought 20 pieces of artwork by Hayden Kays. He purchased them last week," a source exclusively tells E! News. "They are original works and they are all unique. They are not prints. They are all done on the same typewriter. Each piece is hand-typed and produced."

    "Each of the artworks cost 1,000 pounds or about $1,400 to $1,500," the source added. "The artworks show a level of sentiment and love and affection. They are social commentary and involve mind games. They have a theme of love and sex."

    These pieces, which were part of the "Hot 100" exhibit at Cob Gallery in Camden, London, were part of Kays' last typewriter series. "Hayden has produced typewriter pieces of art for the past several years and the 'Hot 100' exhibition is the last of those works. He is not making them anymore and I'm sure that is why Harry snapped them up," the source tells us.

    But this isn't the first time Styles has copped a few of Kays' works. "Harry has purchased other artworks in the past. I think three or four," the source said. "He has aligned himself with Hayden, who is quite controversial in the U.K. because he questions and prods the establishment."
     
    "Harry and Hayden have a creative understanding and admire each other's creativity."
