Solbi’s ‘Flower from Heaven’ sells for 20 million won, comes with song
Singer and artist Solbi’s artwork “Flower from Heaven” was auctioned for 20.1 million won ($17,813) on Wednesday by Seoul Auction, according to the artist’s agency, Map Crew Thursday.
Some 71 bids were made and the selling price was five times the original estimate of 4 million won.
“Flower from Heaven,” a mixed media artwork on canvas, is part of the artist’s “Cake” series. The canvas is layered by thick, white creamy textures and includes a Bluetooth speaker that plays a unique piece of music.
If the owner consents, the song will be released commercially as Solbi’s latest single.
Solbi’s single “Angel,” which was released in April, was part of her artwork “Just a Cake-Angel,” which was auctioned for 10.1 million won in March.
