Leonardo Dicaprio wants to buy surfer paintings for his new home.

The 'Wolf of Wall Street' actor - who recently splashed out $10 million on an eco-friendly New York apartment - has taken a keen interest in punk icon-turned-artist Raymond Pettibon's exhibition at the Venus Over Manhattan gallery and is so keen on the artwork, he and girlfriend Toni Garn have visited the showcase every day for the last 10 days.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''He's been there in the middle of the day, strolling around looking at the art. He'll point something out and Toni's just like, 'Uh-huh, that's nice.'‚ÄČ''

It was revealed earlier this week Leonardo has splashed out on a luxury two-bedroom fourth-floor property at the Delos building in New York's Greenwich Village, and the complex - which has WELL certification for its holistic approach to improving human wellness - boasts facilities including vitamin C-infused showers, purified air and water, and a circulated aromatherapy air supply.

The property also boasts posture-supportive heat reflexology flooring and 'dawn simulation' provided by a circadian lighting design. In addition, Donna Karan's Urban Zen is providing the building's residents with a 'wellness concierge' to ''curate and coordinate your daily wellness experience,'' the New York Post newspaper reports.

Until a luxury duplex apartment in the same building is sold, Leonardo has also been told he can use a $1 million parking space which comes with the neighbouring property.
