Japanese designer, music producer, and entrepreneur NIGO is returning to Sotheby’s for another auction from his personal collection, called NIGOLDENEYE Vol. 1.
NIGOLDENEYE, coined by NIGO’s friend and business partner Pharrell, references his impeccable taste in design, fashion, art, and pop-culture.
NIGOLDENEYE will be the third time NIGO partners with Sotheby’s for a sale. It contains more than 30 artworks and collectibles, many of which are rare or limited-edition. Highlights include some of the earliest KAWS Companion sculptures which were hand-painted by the artist (2002), THE KAWS ALBUM artwork (2005), two pairs of BAPE x KAWS BAPESTA FS-029 KAWS Chompers (2006), and the FOUR PACK screenprint by Stash (2002).
Expected prices range from HK$1,000-1500 (approximately $127-191) for the sneakers, to HK$6,000,000-8,000,000 (approximately $765,000-1,019,000) for THE KAWS ALBUM.
Prior to the auction, the items will be part of a traveling exhibition. The dates are as follows:
2-3 March – Shanghai
5-6 March – Beijing
16-17 March – Taipei
29 March – 1 April – Hong Kong
The auction will take place on April 1 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center.
