Earlier this year in May, Paik Nam June’s art piece ‘Stag’ was sold for a total of 660 million KRW ($576,000 USD) at an auction which set a new record price for the artist’s video art. The name of the buyer was withheld at the time, but it looks like it was actually Big Bang member Taeyang who purchased the item!
Taeyang’s Instagram page showed a photo of the ‘Stag’ art piece with his caption simply stating, ‘Arrived #namjunepaik #stag’. The photo was posted about a month after the auction ended, and it’s a pretty easy guess to assume that Taeyang is the new owner of the piece. The art display was created in 1996 with four television monitors to create the shape of a stag.
