‘A Contemporary Edge’: Bonhams breaks the barriers between art and design

Paintings, sculptures, photography and modern design – the art world has long since abandoned such specific categorical terms. Now, British auction house Bonhams has announced a new auction series that sees artwork from the likes of Hirst and Banksy offered alongside 20th Century furniture…

A particular highlight of the 4 March auction at Bonhams' Bond Street headquarters is a piece by Damien Hirst, estimated to fetch £60-80,000 and enthusiastically titled ‘Beautiful Intergalactic Fantasmagoria in a Rainbow Big Bang Explosion, Let's Have More Intercourse’. Along with works by other renowned artists such as Banksy, Sam Francis and José Guerrero, the sale also includes some stylistically matching pieces of furniture.
