BigBang the South Korean boy group’s T.O.P would be taking part in an art charity auction said the singer’s agency. This auction is being organized by world’s one of the biggest names in brokerage of collectibles.
YG Entertainment, the rapper’s agency mentioned in their press release that the singer from BigBang would be showcasing a succession of collections titled “#TTTOP” and would be curated by T.O.P himself. The event is slated to be held on the 3rd of October in Hong Kong. Sotheby’s the multi-millionaire auction house based in New York would be the one hosting this high profile auction event. YG Entertainment further highlighted the fact that, it in fact is the first such collaboration between Sotheby’s and a young celebrity from this part of the world.
The newly updated file photo that was released by YG Entertainment this Monday features the singer T.O.P who is a rapper member of BigBang – a K-pop boy group.
T.O.P who is associated with many art forms and is known to harbor passion for quite a few of them has been spending time with Sotheby’s for the past one year in preparation for the art charity auction.
One of the officials at the agency talked about the event and compared it to the donation events instead of a run of the mill auction where a collector usually showcases his work to an audience with the only intent being sale of it. It is interesting to note that Sotheby’s would in fact be donating part of their profits and that T.O.P would be taking part in the event without any guarantee of payment.
A sizeable part of the profits from this collaborative venture between T.O.P and Sotheby’s would be diverted to “The Asian Cultural Council” which is a non-profit organization that works to economically support emerging young art talents in Asia who have been struggling for lack of funds.
T.O.P, in his statement expressed his hope that the event may provide a stable, safe place for young struggling artists to practice and hone their talents and vowed to continue helping those who are in need through further charity work in future too.
