Roseberys are excited to collaborate with Artsy yet again to present Roseberys: Urban & Contemporary Art, featuring works by blue-chip contemporary artists from around the world. This auction brings together works by Richard Prince, Keith Haring, Yayoi Kusama, Banksy, and more. Bidding in this auction will close on Monday, December 2nd at 3:00pm GMT (10:00am EST).
Here Shane Xu, the head of the Prints & Multiples department picks out her top five artists within the sale.
The small sale of 105 lots comprises the most sought-after works among the contemporary collectors by top artists who have huge international following and influence. The current art market is not a pure Fine Art market any more but transboundary. A perfect example of collaboration is shown in the first 3 lots – the playful artist Takashi Murakami and the talented fashion guru Virgil Abloh, who recently did a collaboration with IKEA as well.
We have 3 lots (90, 91, 92) of collectable toys by KAWS, who is undoubtably the hottest artist since the breaking record of his painting was made in Hong Kong earlier this year in April.
We also have this fantastic Yayoi Kusama screenprint, the iconic Pumpkin in green from 1996 is the last lot in the sale. It has everything you want from the artist, which makes it the perfect piece to own, no need to mention its investment potential. The edition 83/120 is estimated to sell £17,000–£22,000.
I am really excited to present works of art by the contemporary British artist David Shrigley once again. The seven lots within the auction including 6 prints and a sculpture are amazing examples of his fun, yet crude and cartoonish nature. With each auction the artist is proving more popular. My favorite of the works is Lot 81, ‘You are not alone – 2014’.
Influenced by elements of popular culture such as anime, manga, Walt Disney cartoons, and punk rock, Yoshitomo Nara creates paintings, sculptures, and drawings of adorable-yet-sinister childlike characters. The set of two framed editions, from the unnumbered edition of 500 are perfect examples of the artists work. This set is estimated to sell for £3,000 - £5,000.
The Prints & Multiples department are now welcoming consignments for the next live auction on Tuesday 5 May, 2020. The entry deadline is Thursday 19 March. Contact Head of Department, Shane Xu for a complimentary valuation.
