VIPs (as fans of BIGBANG are known as), your boys are giving you another reason to be proud of them ;)
Choi Seunghyun, or better known as T.O.P, will make his curatorial debut at Sotheby’s Hong Kong at an auction that will be held on 3rd October.
He will be the curator for #TTTOP, a special contemporary art sale envisioned by T.O.P for young art buyers of his generation. While this is the first time that T.O.P will be curating, it will also be the first time for Sotheby’s to collaborate with a young collector as a curator.
A percentage of the profits from the event will be donated to The Asian Cultural Council in a bid to aid young artistes who are facing economic hardships.
The celebrity’s love for art has been cultivated since he was young and is evident through his Instagram account, where he shares photos of furniture and arts most of the time. “I was raised in a very artistic household. All the women in my family, including my mother, majored in art. They were all either artists or art teachers. The Korean modern masters Kim Whanki and Lee Insung are both my blood relatives. I preferred looking at art – and immersing myself in it – to actually painting things myself,” said that rapper about his interest.
T.O.P is not the only BIGBANG member making his country proud, as leader G-Dragon has also been featured in many international photoshoots and fashion weeks.
