The Auction Collective, founded by a former Christies expert, partners up with artists, advisors and galleries to host affordable auctions that are open to everyone. All artworks are sold framed and ready to go on the wall, and there’s 0% buyer’s commission. Anyone interested in seeing what they do, or looking for a special Christmas present should check out their upcoming auction on 13 December at the Saatchi Gallery.
The exhibition and auction will feature artwork from 49 contemporary artists bringing together the two extremes of subject Abstract: Reality – the bold colours and disconnected lines of abstract art, and the fine details and precise representation of photorealist art. Highlights include:
Alex Allan, Pool, estimate: £240-340
Cath Riley, Firm Hand, pencil on paper, estimate: £1,800-2,800
Andrei Costache, Flamingo, painted wood and plater sculpture, estimate: £500-£700
Kelvin Okafor, Eyes of Simon, pencil on paper, estimate: £10,000-£15,000
Antony ‘H’ Haylock, Fuck it Bucket, oil on canvas, estimate: £2000 – £3000
Camille Walala, Dazzle, acrylic on canvas, estimate: £2500 – £3500
