3 decades, 500 auctions and a whole lot of experience. Those are the current numbers, but it’s safe to say that Johan Kiggen will still be counting for a long time to come. 36 years ago he met his future mentor, Alex Descamps, for the first time in the event hall his parents owned. The auction aroused my curiosity and he allowed me to organize an auction. And I could have a taste of the job.

In the years that followed, Kiggen taught himself the ways of the business. And hard work paid off: today, auctioneer Kiggen is known for his exclusive way of auctioning off works of art that have already crossed the world to end up in your living room, as well as for his benefit auctions, etc..
