Get your (virtual) paddles ready.

By Terry Christodoulou 29/07/2020

Esteemed auction house Christie’s will soon launch an online auction of rare paintings, prints and sculptures by some of the world’s leading contemporary artists.

Trespassing aims to link graffiti’s influence on contemporary art, bringing together works by Banksy, KAWS and Invader set against more traditional forms, including the likes of Jonas Wood, Julie Curtiss, George Condo and others.

Curated by collector Ronnie K. Pirovino, the sale is to include highlights such as KAWS’ hand-painted Astro Boy meets COMPANION figure (above), expected to fetch approx. $380,000 alongside mosaic tile work by Invader, SP_43, valued at approx. $83,700.

With over 90 lots on offer, check out select pieces ahead of the auction which will run from August 5-19.
