Initially slated to be part of the ‘Contemporary Art Sale’ auction, the sudden withdrawal of the piece has raised questions about its origins and the circumstances surrounding its intended sale.

‘Youth is Flower’ held significant significance not only as an artwork but also as the first piece created by G-Dragon to be put up for auction. Given G-Dragon’s stature as a renowned artist and cultural icon, the prospect of acquiring one of his original creations generated considerable anticipation among collectors and enthusiasts alike.

However, the abrupt removal of the piece from the auction comes as a surprise, particularly since it was previously scheduled for sale. Galaxy Corporation, G-Dragon’s agency, clarified that the artist himself was not involved in the decision to auction the artwork and was unaware of the details surrounding its inclusion in the auction.

The revelation raises intriguing questions about how ‘Youth is Flower’ came to be listed for auction without G-Dragon’s knowledge or consent.

Its sudden emergence on the auction block adds an unexpected twist to its narrative, casting a shadow of uncertainty over its future ownership and fate.
