Not long ago, Sotheby’s New York announced an upcoming auction centering upon Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Untitled painting from 1982. The Big Apple institution predicts that the aforesaid masterpiece will sell for a record-breaking price of $60 million USD. The artwork has never been seen since it hit the market back in May 1984 and is currently in the hands of a private collector. Although the piece doesn’t feature Basquiat’s trademark crown or copyright visuals, it does portray the legendary artist’s layered scribbles and a face that mimics his Untitled (Two Heads on Gold) piece from the same year.

The artwork is set for auction on May 18 at Sotheby’s New York.

George Condo: “New Works” Exhibit in New York

George Condo’s unnerving, psychical and contentious paintings have stunned the world over—you may have seen his work from his five distinct album cover art for Kanye West’s 2010 album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy or his custom-made handbags for Kim Kardashian. A plethora of his work portray abstract figures that are rendered in a very realistic manner which he pegged as “artificial realism.” He’s a contemporary of Keith Haring, a factory artist for Andy Warhol back in the ‘80s and even jammed out with Jean-Michel Basquiat alongside the artist’s band Gray.

The man is a living art legend and he has an upcoming exhibit at Skarstedt in New York. Simply dubbed New Works, the presentation will predominantly feature seven new sculptures made of wood, bronze and other objects which he found laying around in his East Hampton studio. Additionally, he will showcase new paintings on canvas that relate to his series of action driven pieces which he made in 2014.

Stay tuned for an upcoming feature on HYPEBEAST and be sure to drop by the exhibit at Skarstedt starting Aprill 27 up until June 24.
