Daughter of former DG of NAFDAC, Njideka Akunyili set a new auction record in New York with her artwork which sells over a million dollar

A new auction record was set for the Nigerian-born artist, Njideka Akunyili Crosby in New York last week when her artwork, “Drown” soared to sell for $1,092,500, over three times the high-estimate ($200,000-$300,000), in Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Sale.

No fewer than 11 bidders competed for the work that was eventually sold to an anonymous buyer on the telephone.

See the artwork below;

The artwork - Drown - which is sold for over a million dollars
“Drown” is an intimate self-portrait of the artist with her husband, Justin, and demonstrates beautifully how the layers of Njideka Akunyili Crosby’s work reference the layers of her own identity.
