Upcoming Auctions: Feb 2 – 8

February 1, 2015
Sanja Lazic was born in 1990 in Belgrade, Serbia. While studying Journalism at the Faculty of Political Sciences, she discovered that her love towards investigating and exploring is much deeper than she thought. She enrolled into numerous projects including authorship on a student radio and TV station, and worked as a PR and journalist for the Belgrade Jazz Festival two years in a row. Her interest in art comes from a very early age and although she didn’t have the talent to pursue it professionally, she enjoys every day working and writing about it. Her favorite urban artists are Interesni Kazki, Saner and Phlegm. You can contact Sanja via sanja.lazic@widewalls.ch.

One of the most exciting auctions in the week before us is the one hosted by the renewed French auction house Artcurial in Paris. Entitled Urban Art, the sale starting February 4th will include almost 200 lots, divided into two main sections: early graffiti and the new urban art scene. The historical section covers New York City’s graffiti pioneers like Seen and Futura, with an estimated prices of 18,000€ and higher. One of the major pieces that will be offered from this period is a 1983 piece Dark Continent of Kings by Dondi White (estimate: €25 000 – 35 000), which is undoubtedly one of the most important pieces of American graffiti. On the other hand, the contemporary urban art section will focus on some of the crucial French and American artists like JR and Shepard Fairey. For the first time, Artcurial will offer a work by KAWS, the artist represented today by the Perrotin gallery, who has a huge following in the US and Asia (estimate: €120 000 – 150 000). Although his work today is primarily focused on canvas, KAWS still remains true to his first love, which is street art. Bidders will also get the chance to buy other artworks by equally talented and current artists like Alexone Dizac, David Walker, Rero, Jonone, Swoon and many others. Check out our gallery and maybe you’ll find something for your own collection!
