NIGO is known around the world for his extensive art collection which contains many commissioned pieces from nearly every major artist of our time. Returning to Sotheby's Hong Kong in April, the founder of BAPE will auction off some of his personal collection for "NIGOLDENEYE Vol. 1".
The tag NIGOLDENEYE was coined by Pharrell and it refers to NIGO's vision which helped propel street culture and its ascent in fashion and high art. Items that are included in the auction are THE KAWS ALBUM commissioned by NIGO from KAWS in 2005, Homer and Marge from the KIMPSONS SERIES also done by KAWS in 2005, two pairs of KAWS x BAPE BAPESTA Chompers, FOUR PACK by Stash from 2002 and UNTITLED (Astro Boy) figurines by KAWS from 2002 produced by OriginalFake.
Check out the pictures below and if you are in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing or Taipei, be sure to catch the pieces on tour. For more information, head to sothebys.com. You may remember that earlier this year, Sotheby's auctioned off 248 Supreme skate decks.
