Entertainment 03 Apr 2019

No it was no April´s fool as some of us assumed and hoped for, but the viral painting by KAWS sold for a record US$14.8m (HK$116m) at Sotheby’s in Hong Kong.

New rumours suggest that The Kaws Album was bought by Justin Bieber? And yesterday after the record sale, the pop beau posted a picture of the painting, without comment, on his Instagram, fuelling the speculations.

Same day, different place, KAWS also posted the painting on his Instagram account saying: “What a strange morning…Do I think my work should sell for this much?- No.”
