Cripta Djan, born Djan Ivson in 1984 (São Paulo), started to pixar in 1996 aged 12 when he joined Cripta, one of the local gangs to which he still belongs today. He is one of the pioneers of escalada: free climbing to the top of 20 story skyscrapers without safety equipment to leave his mark on previously untouched surfaces across the city. Cripta Djans works provide a critical narrative on the cultural, socio-economic and artistic value of pixação. His repeating motifs, consisting of geometric letters and scriptures, will always carry social meaning but have developed into a form of art themselves through which he communicates. His work is part of La Biennale d'Architectura in Venice this year as well as being shown in galleries in Brazil, New York, Spain, United Kingdom and Amsterdam.

INFORMATION FOR BUYERS AT PUBLIC AUCTION
2. Agency. As auctioneers we usually act as agents for the seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed. Accordingly, if you buy at auction your contract for the item or items purchased is with the seller and not with us as the auctioneer.
We are dependent on information provided by the seller about a lot and whilst we may inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are normally unable to carry out a detailed examination and frequently no examination of lots in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested, and the corresponding risk should they not do so. Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of lots contained in the Conditions of Sale. Neither the seller nor we, as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. In particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order. However, in so far as we have examined the goods and make a representation about their condition in the auction catalogue, we shall be liable for any defect which is not reflected in that representation and which that examination ought to have revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are ‘deliberate forgeries’ may be returned, and repayment made. There is a 3-week time limit. (The expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is defined in our Conditions of Sale).
9. Bidding. Bidders will be required to register before the sale commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the sale registration form. Bidders are required to provide a government issued identity document and a proof of address. Some form of identification may be required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for telephone bidding.
11. Methods of Payment. Payment will be accepted, if you are a successful bidder, by debit card issued in the name of the Buyer by a UK bank and registered to a UK billing address; by all major UK issued credit cards issued in the name of the Buyer and registered to a UK billing address with the exception of American Express and Diners Club; by bank transfer direct into our bank account, Bank Details: NatWest, 30 Market Place, Newbury, Berkshire RG14 5AG. Account Name: Dreweatts 1759 Ltd. A/C: 62412949, Sort Code: 60-15-07, BIC: NWBKGB2L, IBAN: GB21NWBK60150762412949. The name of the bank account holder should match the name of the buyer. First time buyers who are not present at the saleroom are requested to pay by bank transfer.

16. Due Diligence checks and Anti-Money Laundering Procedures
Under the money laundering regulations in force we are required to carry out relevant due diligence checks. This includes verifying the identity of all customers we transact with as well as any beneficial owners on behalf of whom they may transact. Vendors who are unable to or refuse to supply required identification documents and proof of address will not be able to consign to Dreweatts auctions. Copies of customer due diligence checks will be stored for as long as it is necessary to satisfy legal requirements in an appropriate storage facility, which for the avoidance of doubt may include storage solely in electronic form.
17. Authority to deduct commission and expenses and retain premium and interest.
(b) In case of lots unsold at auction you authorise us at our discretion to reoffer such lots and negotiate a sale within seven days of the auction date, in which case the same charges will be payable as if such lots had been sold at auction and so far as appropriate these Terms apply.
18. Warehousing. We disclaim all liability for goods delivered to our saleroom without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make minimum warehousing charge of £10 per lot per day. Unsold lots are subject to the same charges if you do not remove them within a reasonable time of notification. If not removed within three weeks we reserve the right to sell them and defray charges from any net proceeds of sale or at your expense to consign them to the local authority for disposal.
19. Settlement. After sale settlement of the net sum due to you normally takes place within 28 days of the sale unless the buyer has not paid for the goods. In this case no settlement will then be made but we will take your instructions in the light of our Conditions of Sale for Public Auctions. You authorise any sums owed by you to us on other transactions to be deducted from the sale proceeds. You must note the liability to reimburse the proceeds of sale to us as under the circumstances provided for in Condition 12 above.

IMPORTANT NOTICES TO WATCH BUYERS:
DAMAGE, RESTORATION, ALTERATION
Although every effort is made to note any damage, restoration or alterations, the absence of any such information in catalogue descriptions does not imply the lot is in perfect condition and free from any such defects. Prospective buyers should satisfy themselves as to the condition of any lot prior to bidding. All watches are serviced from time to time, and Dreweatts are unable to guarantee that the working parts of any watch movement, glass or crystal, winding crowns, watch bracelet, strap or buckle are the manufacturers’ original parts, unless otherwise stated in the catalogue description. We are unable to make any representation in our catalogue descriptions or condition reports as to the authenticity of such parts. Dreweatts are unable to make any representation, nor make any comment on, the authenticity of diamonds, or other gemstones, set into watch dials, bezels, cases and bracelets.
All watch movements have been inspected by Dreweatts watchmaker and specialists, and we have verified all inventory and movement numbers. For the information of potential bidders, all inventory and movement numbers are listed in the catalogue description for the relevant lot.
There may be Import Restrictions into some territories outside the United Kingdom placed on certain watch brands, or on the importation of watches with straps composed of animal skins which may fall under CITES Regulations. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to comply with all Export/Import regulations and potential bidders are strongly recommended to check with their shipping agent as to any such regulations that may apply to any lot. Dreweatts are not shippers and are unable to offer any advice regarding such regulations.
Dreweatts condition reports will identify whether a watch functions at the time of cataloguing, and suggest possible, but not comprehensive, restoration work that may need to be carried out for the watch to function properly. Dreweatts are unable to test watches for accuracy or running to time, and we cannot guarantee that any watch will function when purchased from us.
As we have examined all watch movements by removing the case backs, we cannot guarantee that water resistant watches will remain water resistant following purchase from us. Dreweatts recommend that any watch purchased from us is subsequently overhauled by a competent watchmaker to ensure proper functioning.
IMPORTANT NOTICES TO JEWELLERY BUYERS:
DAMAGE, RESTORATION, ALTERATION
Although every effort is made to note any damage, restoration or alterations, the absence of any such information in catalogue descriptions does not imply the lot is in perfect condition and free for any such defects. Prospective buyers should satisfy themselves as to the condition of any lot prior to bidding.
Prospective bidders should be aware that many coloured gems have been historically treated by a variety of methods to improve their appearance, both in terms of colour and transparency. Rubies and sapphires are routinely heat treated, emeralds are enhanced through the use of coloured and transparent oils and resins, and jadeite is routinely stained. These treatments, and others including irradiation and coating, are generally accepted by the jewellery trade as standard practice. Although most treatments are considered to be permanent, those gemstones which have been oiled may need to be re-treated to maintain their appearance. Any such treatments affect the market value of coloured gemstones, and Dreweatts pre-sale estimates published in the catalogue assume that all gemstones, unless otherwise stated in the catalogue, may have been enhanced. Dreweatts may obtain Gemmological Reports from a recognised laboratory where appropriate detailing any enhancements, or lack of, for certain gemstones, and such reports may be obtained for prospective bidders prior to the sale, provided such requests are made at least three weeks before the sale, and that the requesting party has prepaid for such a report. However it is not possible for Dreweatts to obtain reports for every stone offered in the sale.
In the absence of a gemmological laboratory report, it is not possible for Dreweatts to make any comment on the possibility that any gemstone in any lot may have been subject to enhancement.
Dreweatts catalogue descriptions and condition reports adhere to the guidelines laid out in the ‘Blue Book’ of CIBJO, the International Jewellery Confederation.
All gram weights have been obtained using an electronic balance, but weights stated in the catalogue are approximate and for guidance only, and potential bidders should satisfy themselves as to their accuracy.
‘…approximately 1.20 carats total,…’ all such stone weights are estimated using standard equipment and formulae, and are subject to the limitations imposed by the mount.
‘…weighing 1.20 carats,…’ where the description reads as such, the stones in question have been removed from the mount and weighted using an electronic balance.
‘…by Lacloche,…’ in our opinion is a piece made by or for the jeweller, bearing relevant signatures, maker’s marks, and where appropriate, the maker’s inventory number/s.
COLOURED STONES OF BURMA (MYANMAR) ORIGIN
Buyers should be aware that certain territories (notably the United States of America) have import restrictions on certain coloured gemstones. All gemstones that maybe of Burma (Myanmar) origin, notably rubies and jadeite, may require a certificate of origin before they can be imported. prospective bidders for such gemstones should check with their shipper, and relevant Government authorities regarding any necessary certification prior to bidding. Whilst Dreweatts are able to suggest a number of Gemmological Laboratories for such certification, we are unable to carry out any such certification for potential bidders or buyers.

IMPORTANT NOTICES REGARDING THE CATALOGUING OF CLOCKS:
Movements, dials and cases
Movements and dials are described as relating to the cases in which they are housed in one of the following three ways:
the case… we are of the opinion that the movement and dial started life in the current case.
in a case… we are of the opinion that the movement and dial are in a case of correct period and type (and may well be original to the movement and dial), however there is evidence to suggest that they may not have started out life together.
now in a case… we are of the opinion that the movement and dial are no longer in the original case as it is not of correct period and/or type.
Pendulums, weights, winding and case keys
unless specifically indicated otherwise in the catalogue description it can be assumed that all clocks with cases are sold with the requisite pendulum and correct number of weights (where appropriate), however we cannot guarantee that they are original to the clock. This excludes lantern clocks or loose movements which are more often than not offered without pendulums or weights. We do not indicate in the catalogue description whether winding or case keys are present with any specific clock. As many clocks are consigned without keys please check with the department to establish whether they are present or not prior to bidding.
due to the mechanical nature of clocks and the fact that most are of great age we cannot offer any guarantee as to whether they are in working order or free from major faults or restoration. Although we endeavour to catalogue items in a fair and informed manner, omission of any comments or observations regarding the condition or originality of a clock in the description does not necessarily indicate that it is free from significant faults, restoration or is in working condition. We would strongly advise any prospective purchaser to view the item in person or request a condition report and/or further images prior to bidding.
dial measurements are given in inches, other dimensions such as height are given in centimetres and inches. The measurement given for the height of a longcase clock excludes any removable finials in order to provide an approximate minimum ceiling height in which the clock can be accommodated.
IMPORTANT NOTICES FOR BUYERS OF WINE AND SPIRITS
Buying at Dreweatts
There are several ways you can bid at a Dreweatts auction; in person, by leaving a commission or absentee bid, on the telephone where available and live via the internet – please make arrangements before the sale. This notice applies only to a person who wishes to bid in person, or by leaving a commission or absentee bid, at a Dreweatts public auction. For bidding at an online auction or for online bidding at a public auction please see our Online Auction Terms published on our website at www.dreweatts.com.
Bidding in Person
If intending to buy you are required to register your name and details at reception prior to the commencement of the auction. You will be required to provide a proof of identity and address to register for bidding. You will then be allocated a bidding number, which you use when bidding for an item.
Dreweatts will add these bids to the auctioneers’ sale book and will undertake to purchase the lots on your behalf as cheaply as allowed by other bids and reserves. If two buyers submit identical commission bids Dreweatts may prefer the first bid received.
All purchases are subject to a buyer’s premium, which is 17.5% of the hammer price (21% including VAT) up to and including £150,000 and 15% of the hammer price (18% including VAT) in excess of £150,000. In the event that a lot has a dagger (†) beside the lot number in the catalogue, this indicates that the item is owned by an entity or company required to pay VAT (generally not a Dealer, as they operate under a dealer’s margin scheme). VAT is payable at 20% on the hammer price. Lots marked with a double dagger ‡ (presently a reduced rate of 5%) or Ω (presently at standard rate of 20%) have been imported from outside the European Union to be sold at auction and therefore the buyer must pay the import VAT at the appropriate rate on the hammer price.
In Bond Lots
Bidding will be at duty paid prices other than for those lots marked ‘IN BOND/β’. Dreweatts Wine Department will contact buyers who have purchased wine ‘IN BOND/β’ to ascertain if the wine is to be removed from bond or transferred to a bonded account. Buyers of wine to be removed from bond will be invoiced duty and vat on the hammer price at the prevailing rates. VAT will also be added to the buyer’s premium on lots purchased whether or not they remain ‘in bond’.
Viewing / Condition
All wine and spirits are stored off-site. Images of lots for the purposes of condition can be viewed online and should be referred to prior to bidding. It is the responsibility of potential buyers to obtain any additional information (if any) on lots on which they intend to bid. Catalogue descriptions are for reference as to the contents of a lot and should not be relied upon as a statement as to the condition of a lot. Please note that Dreweatts are unable to give verbal condition reports for any lot, and all condition reports will be given in writing via our website.
No returns will be accepted. Each lot shall be at the Purchaser's risk from the conclusion of the auction until payment and collection are made.
Description of the lots
- Descriptions, ullages and conditions of wines are described as correctly as possible at the time of the publication of the catalogue. Purchasers of old wines must assure themselves regarding ullage levels, labels etc. No returns will be accepted.
- Vintages: Where a vintage cannot be ascertained from a label, it may still be noted based on cork branding, cellar records or other corroborating evidence including other lots from the same source.
