Simon Tovey, Head of New Now, said: “What a way to end to the season, with the Highest total for a New Now sale in London. In true New Now style last night six artists made their debut onto the secondary market and seven auction records were achieved, all of which were supported by a great depth of bidding from over 600 participants from across 47 countries. It was an honour to offer and sell 100% of the works donated by renowned contemporary artists to benefit The Yinka Shonibare Foundation and we are delighted to see £252,720 raised for that fantastic cause. Despite the various headwinds, this season has been a triumph and we look forward to continuing this momentum into 2021.”
