What started during Art Basel week in South Beach inside the Chandran Gallery x Juxtapoz Beach House exhibition and installation space, with the UNIV team's surf craft workshop in the backyard, came to a close today as the special benefit auction for Waves for Water ended with a fantastic amount of bidding from around the world! Juxtapoz, Chandran, and UNIV cannot be any more pleased to donate to the Waves For Water charity and their continuted efforts to bring clean, usable drinking water to areas of the world in need. Especially, we want to thank each artist for their donation of time, energy, and art for the project.

Remember, it was a set of 3. A record was set Tuesday night, when late British painter Francis Bacon's "Three Studies of Lucian Freud" was sold for a whopping $142.4 million at Christie's in NYC, breaking the world record for the most expensive piece of art ever auctioned.
