Big Bang's T.O.P, who is well known to be an art aficionado and appreciator, sat down for an interview with CNN Style to talk a bit about his upcoming October 3 Sotheby's auction in Hong Kong, for which he will take part as a curator. 

For the interview, T.O.P introduced the works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lee Ufan, and more, sharing his love for art. 

T.O.P explained, "My life is often very exciting as I live both as the musician T.O.P from Big Bang and as multiple characters through my acting. When my mind is tired from such a life, I find healing and consolation through the immense beauty of art and am always newly inspired. When I see designs or paintings that gratify me, and when I see something good or an unimagined kind of beauty [in art], I feel a certain envy which stimulates me even more."

The idol continued, "[The auction] combined the works of Asian and Western artists, and though are many celebrated artists' masterpieces, I wonder what it will be like if they are mixed with the works of up and coming artists' 'young' tastes..." 

T.O.P concluded, "I'm very proud to see all the pieces that I carefully curated for over a year gathered in one place but I'm also nervous at the thought of sharing the happiness and the other whirlwind of emotions [I felt] with so many people."

BIGBANG latest news:

[OSEN=선미경 기자] BIGBANG is finally coming back. Saying that they will come back “soon”, BIGBANG has hinted on another unprecedentedly large-scale comeback. BIGBANG’s SEUNGRI drew keen attention by hinting on BIGBANG’s comeback in NAVER V-LIVE+ broadcasting “SEUNGRI ON-AIR 여보세요 승리세요” on September 28. In the broadcasting, SEUNGRI said, “You’ll be able to listen to BIGBANG’s new album soon”. BIGBANG released new songs every month last year, in “MADE” project that was carried out for four months. BIGBANG’s new album to be released this year is drawing all the more attention, as it is the one to culminate the 10th anniversary of BIGBANG’s debut and to complete “MADE” project. On September 29, YG Entertainment announced, “BIGBANG members have been working on the album despite their busy overseas schedules, to release it within this year. Recently, they are fully concentrating on the preparation for the album, working together at the YG office every day”. BIGBANG is musician who enjoys great popularity both from its fandom and the general public. BIGBANG is called the star of the stars, which indicates that so many people like BIGBANG’s music. As such, BIGBANG members and their music appeal to a wide pool of people. The members take part in almost all the work on BIGBANG’s music and their contents are unveiled only after passing strict screening from YG’s CEO YANG HYUN SUK about the perfectness of the quality. That is the reason why all music fans have big anticipation about BIGBANG’s new songs. Before SEUNGRI’s broadcasting, TAEYANG once said, “We’re trying to make really good songs comparable to every single of ‘MADE’ and that is why the release of the new album has been postponed little by little so far”. To live up to many people’s big expectations, BIGBANG members have to take extra care about the quality of their new album. That was the reason why the release of the full album of “MADE” project which had originally been supposed to be released last year was delayed. Such decision was made for a perfect album with quality contents, and better music. The album polished for whole one year is to be finally released soon. Carrying out “MADE” project last year, BIGBANG made many hits including “LOSER”, “BAE BAE”, “BANG BANG BANG”, and “IF YOU”. With those songs, BIGBANG stayed in No.1 on charts for the entire four months. The music was so special enough to be loved by both BIGBANG’s fandom and the public. That is the reason why people are paying even bigger attention to BIGBANG’s full album. It will be worthwhile to look forward to the contents of BIGBANG’s “MADE” project that is to be finally completed soon.

RIGHT?! My jaw dropped when I saw that- I mean, I know Big Bang is loaded, and for good reason considering their amazing ticket and album sales. You tend to forget those kinds of things until you see the fruits of their labors

the Basquiat is not belongs to a Japanese collector, if I'm not mistaken. Apparently TOP convinced him to sell because he really wanted to include it in the sale. From what I read, TOP is planning on bidding on one or two pieces though.
