Heritage Auction Day One

First and foremost let us give an applause to our good friends over at Heritage for putting together another amazing display at Complexcon that was second to none. The Kaws bus stop display was the highlight of the event. The ability to tag it I thought was genius on the part of Heritage and their crew. Also the wall with the different prints framed in white was a beauty. My favorite by far was the Kaws Kate Moss but you can say Im biased.

Day one were saw some good results ,fair results, and some steals. So we have come together to give our humble opinion on the good, the fair, and the steals from day one of Heritage auction.
