Miami Art Superstar Kre8 has 20th sold-out show with Park West Gallery | national news
SOUTHFIELD, Michigan., December 9, 2021 / PRNewswire / – With the last pound of a hammer, Miami artist Kre8 made history last weekend with a 20e sold-out show with West Park Gallery.
The record breaking show was broadcast live worldwide on Park west new live online auction platform, which the company launched in april 2020.
Kre8 is one of the most popular artists who West Park represented. His iconic blasts of color against surreal backdrops have earned him over 140,000 Instagram followers and legions of collectors around the world.
However, Kre8 did more than just beat its record for most sold-out shows. During the online auction weekend, he also broke the record for the highest price ever paid for one of his paintings at auction – his painting “Rooted in Power” sold for $ 65,000.
The painting was a work in progress by Kre8 and was not originally slated for auction, but the artist agreed to make it available sooner for West Park collectors.
Surprisingly, hours later, Kre8 again broke her own record for “highest price ever paid” when her diptych “Calculated Mayhem” sold for a staggering price. $ 95,000.
âCalculated Mayhemâ was another late addition to the weekend’s auction catalog, it came directly from the artist’s personal collection. Thanks to Park west live streaming platform, auctioneer Cole Waters was actually able to sell the painting directly on Kre8’s living room wall at Miami.
“Kre8 is a real phenomenon,” said Albert Scaglione, founder and CEO of West Park Gallery. “Our collectors embraced his unique talent with genuine passion, and I know he will continue to break records as an artist throughout his career.”
The live online auction weekend featured several fierce rounds of auctions, led by auctioneers Cole Waters and Morris shapiro, and over 200 works by Kre8 were sold at the event.
âIt’s always fantastic when an artist connects with an audience,â Waters said. “There was electricity flowing through the room when we brought Kre8’s work up to auction last weekend, and we knew it was going to be something special.”
Kre8 has become a staple of Park West land and sea events in recent years and the company, which is the world’s largest art dealer, looks forward to welcoming the acclaimed artist to its auctions in person and online in the future.
