Michael Kagan Is Auctioning a Sculptural Astronaut via Artsy

Bidding ends today at 12pm PST.

Brooklyn-based artist Michael Kagan is known for his gestural artwork that typically depicts astronauts, Formula 1 drivers and the various technologies that power them. Kagan is currently exhibiting a series of new paintings at Kantor Gallery, however, for those who can’t make the show, the artist is also auctioning off a sculptural astronaut through Artsy and Sotheby’s with the proceeds benefitting the New York Academy of Art.

CERNAN (Black), 2020 is made of polyresin and depicts a graphite astronaut with hits of red along its space suit. The sculpture is part of Kagan’s artist proofs, which he donated as a way to honor the Academy in which he attended grad school 20 years ago. “It’s a special and important place in the city and the art world and it was a key part of my path that lead to where I am today,” said the artist in a statement.

Standing at 11 inches high and 5 inches wide, the sculpture being auctioned is edition 20/20. The current bid stands at $3,500 USD and will end today at 12pm PST via Artsy.

In case you missed it, Sotheby’s is auctioning a sculpture of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
