Massive $8m KAWS Slated for Sotheby’s HK Sale
Sotheby’s Yuki Terase posted this KAWS work to her Instagram over the long weekend. Untitled (Kimpson's #1) owned by Japanese entreprenuer NIGO follows two other, smaller 40 x 40 inch works from the series that were sold in April at Sotheby’s in Hong Kong for $2.6 and $2.7m. This much larger 108 by 96 inch (9 feet by 8 feet) work carries an estimate of HKD 48m - 68m ($6.12m - 8.67m) but collector Niels Kantor chimes in on the post to claim there’s already an $8m guarantee in place. The auction takes place in Hong Kong on October 6th.
