Christie’s has announced a second offering of their online-only sale Trespassing, curated with proprietor Ronnie K. Pirovino. The sale centers around the influence of graffiti on contemporary art and spotlights the humor of the artists who work with the medium, featuring works by artists such as KAWS, Banksy and Invader, as well as Jonas Wood, George Condo and Allison Zuckerman.

“We are thrilled to present the Trespassing sale again this summer, as the sale is a true multi-category collaborative effort with tremendous energy,” Lindsay Griffith, Head of Department, Prints and Multiples in New York, said in a press release. “We hope to again capture the interest of new and seasoned buyers globally with this mix of known and emerging artists and mediums.”
