Christie’s presents No Time Like Present. The online auction includes the collection of Mr. Shawn Yue, a renowned actor and collector in Asia. The collection is a retrospective of his career over the past 20 years, as well as reflects his passionate pursuits in life and art. This also marks the very first NFT sale in Asia offered by an international auction house, with a broad array of NFT-minted art include a group of exceptionally rare CryptoPunks created by Larva Labs, as well as Yuga Labs’ Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and Larva Labs’ latest creation Meebits.
The collection also features physical artworks including George Condo’s masterpiece Nun and Priest, and exceptional timepieces including a rare Rolex Daytona with Paul Newman “RCO” dial ref. 6263 wristwatch.
In celebration of his 40th birthday this year, part of the sale’s proceeds will be donated to support the Make-A-Wish Hong Kong Foundation, which aims to grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses aged between 3 and 17, in Hong Kong and Macau, to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
