Need a painting for your wall? G-Dragon’s marker and spray paint art piece “Youth is Flower” could be yours for an auction price starting at 30 million won ($22,540).  


“Youth of Flower” will be auctioned at Seoul Auction’s contemporary art fair on March 29, according to the auction house’s website on Thursday. Boy band Big Bang member G-Dragon created the piece in 2017 using a marker and spray paint on a steel panel.


Also on Seoul Auction’s roster are pieces from visual artist Lee Bae, known for his monochrome paintings and charcoal sculptures, and from artist Kim Sun-woo, known for his dodo bird designs.

An avid fine art collector, G-Dragon had even been listed on ARTnews’ “50 Art Collectors to Watch,” the New York-based magazine’s list of emerging art collectors, in 2019. But this is the first time his own creation, and not a collaborative piece or a piece from his collection, is being auctioned.


Seoul Auction said the starting price for the art piece will be 30 million won and that the winning price for the piece will be determined at the auction held at 3 p.m. on March 29. “Youth is Flower” is currently on display at Seoul Auction’s Gangnam center in southern Seoul.

1. Pretty

2. Seriously it’s true that if you become famous, people will applaud you even for pooping

3. Isn’t all art like that? The price goes up the more famous you are and if there’s a backstory to it. There are a lot of art that could be drawn by anyone complexity-wise

4. I can’t understand modern art….

5. Why are people mocking him for this?

6. If you think that this is so ridiculous and laughable, then you just need to raise your name value yourself and do it

7. Someone with money and a sense of value will buy it… I don’t have the space for it in my life, and I don’t have the finances to buy it, so it doesn’t matter who buys it for me…

8. The first one is pretty

9. Modern art…

10. None of you is gonna buy it…ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I bet that none of you can even afford this anyways
