2021 Spring Auction Session: Poly & Phillips Dual-Location Joint Auction, Japanese Female Young Artist Ayako Rokkaku Broke Personal Record
ArtPro Newsletter: On June 7, 2021, at the "20th Century & Contemporary Art & Design Day Sale" held jointly by Phillips and Poly Hong Kong, Ayako Rokkaku's work Untitled Arp 18-022 was sold. The estimate was HKD 400,000-600,000. After fierce bidding on site, it was hammering at HKD 2.8 million and finally sold with HKD 3.528 million, which broke her personal auction record immediately.
As the most popular female young artist in the world, Ayako Rokkaku is considered "the next Yoshitomo Nara." She has been creating since she was about twenty years old, and she likes to paint acrylic paint directly onto canvas or cardboard with her bare hands. Rokkaku is a self-taught artist with unique painting skills that created a whimsical world of dreamy colors, which become a hot topic in recent years. On December 6, 2020, Ayako Rokkaku’s work The Sisters was in Ravenel Taipei, which has set a personal record at the time with TWD 11.76 million (total CNY2.748 million). Today, her Untitled Arp 18-022 has set another high price.
