3 decades, 200 auctions and a whole lot of experience. Those are the current numbers, but it’s safe to say that Johan Kiggen and his partner Katrien Kiggen will still be counting for a long time to come. 28 years ago he met his future mentor, Alex Descamps, for the first time in the event hall his parents owned. A place where Descamps frequently organised auctions that aroused Kiggen’s curiosity. So he bluntly asked Descamps whether he 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, Kiggen’s Auction House is known for its exclusive artwork from all over the world. Art that may eventually end up in your very own living room.
