The first half of 2021 has seen great results at auction for young emerging stars with five artists—born after 1980—bringing in over $5M each at auction.
While the sales of the self-taught Japanese artist Ayako Rokkaku came overwhelmingly from Asia, Matthew Wong, Avery Singer, Salman Toor, and Amoako Baofo have seen a stronger global interest for their works.
