The best and most beautiful thing about art is that it can bring beauty to some of the most common and overlooked places, spaces, people, and things. Unfortunately, the most coveted pieces are usually extremely hard to come by, especially when in the hands of avid art collectors. However, when certain pieces are auctioned, it is the only opportunity for the “masses”, in a sense, to obtain the piece they’ve always been eyeing.
With that in mind, we were extremely excited when we found out that the contemporary auction house, Paddle 8, was doing a special homage to summer through their surf and skate inspired auction. Featuring skateboard decks and surfboards with original designs by renowned artists like Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Dave White, Tim Bessell, and Takashi Murakami, this auction is one that should not be overlooked. And for those with a pallet for photography, this exclusive auction also includes original prints by Gray Malin, Josef Hoflehner, Massimo Vitali, and more. Plus, there is also something in store for those sneaker heads out there as well.
So, if you are in the summer mood and in the market for some new art pieces and collectibles, be sure to head over to Paddle8.com now, for I assure you, these one-of-a-kind items will surely sell out fast.
