"This is a charity project, but also I am very honoured having the opportunity to paint on a London bus panel. I'm glad that I can help someone through creation" - Mogu Takahashi

Japanese artist Mogu Takahashi (born 1984) moves between drawing, painting, sculpture and varied sorts of visual expression. Humorously, spontaneously and playfully, the images come in a constant flow of image-making. Drawing has come naturally since childhood but she initially studied architecture instead of art. It was a gallerist in New York who spotted her talent, and after being invited to a group exhibition, audience appreciation of Takahashi's work helped her decide to become an artist instead.

In 2013 Mogu Takahashi began the self-initiated project Mogu Daily Doodles, posting daily images on Instagram where she found she could connect with other artists around the world. She has had solo exhibitions in Japan, Paris, Barcelona, Melbourne and at Fine Little Day in Gothenburg, and collaborated with various brands such as GUCCI and SHISEIDO. For Fine Little Day, Mogu Takahashi has created some of our most appreciated works for children and adults with a playful mindset.

Popcorn and cascade bidding:

If a bid is placed during the last 2 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional 2 minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.

Cascade bidding ensures auction lots close at staggering times, one after another. For example, the first lot of an auction might close at 12:01pm, the second lot would close at 12:02pm, then the third lot at 12:03pm, etc.
