Upper estimate price exceeded by 44 %.

In November 2020 Bonhams in Sydney / Melbourne held the auction Important Australian Art, which included the work Man Who Walks Through Walls, 2009 by Blek le Rat. The »bidding war« ended at AUD 17,220.00 (€ 14,412.45), 44% above the upper estimate. However, buyers have had to dig much deeper into their pockets for other works by Blek le Rat - we have observed the highest auction result to date for the work The Last Tango À Paris - 2016, which sold at auction in November 2019 for EUR 49,400.00.

Oberer Schätzpreis um 44 % übertroffen

Im November 2020 führte Bonhams in Sydney / Melbourne die Auktion Important Australian Art durch, in der auch die Arbeit Man Who Walks Through Walls, 2009 von Blek le Rat zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von AUD 17.220,00 (€ 14.412,45) und damit 44% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Für andere Arbeiten von Blek le Rat mussten die Käufer allerdings auch schon deutlich tiefer in die Tasche greifen – das bisher höchste Auktionsergebnis haben wir für die Arbeit The Last Tango À Paris - 2016 beobachtet, die im November 2019 für EUR 49.400,00 versteigert wurde.
