Is There Anything New About the KAWS Frenzy?The thing about that KAWS story where there was supposedly a feeding frenzy in KAWS’s market because of the recent auction sales is that it’s not really a new thing. The same story confirms twice that KAWS sold out at last year’s fair but the price went up:
- “They always sell out and as soon as they sell out the price goes up,” said Anna Becker, 44, of Los Angeles, who arrived too late at 11:20 a.m.
- Helen Schorsch, 26, managed to add her name to the list Wednesday, recalling that a portfolio of 10 prints by KAWS, at $40,000 apiece, sold out at last year’s fair.
