Yoshitomo Nara, Missing in Action (2000). Acrylic on canvas. 165 x 150cm. Courtesy Philips and Poly Auction.

The undisputed star of the show for Phillips Hong Kong Evening Sale on 8 June 2021 was this Yoshitomo Nara painting titled Missing in Action.

The painting sold for just over $3 million in 2015 with Phillips, but Nara's prices have exploded in the last few years, so it came as no surprise when the painting fetched $16 million, the second highest price Nara has ever fetched at auction.

Sam Gaskin reported on the sale in Ocula News.
