Recently I donated the opportunity to have a tape portrait of yourself to the Reprieve charity auction at the Wallace Collection. Here is some progress shots of one of the winning bidders, actress (and all-round hero) Olivia Colman.
The other artist to donate work to this auction was Anthony Gormley.
I was ecstatic to have raised £6100 for the charity that night, and £9100 in total for charity during the months October and November.
Yesterday I was involved in two charity exhibitions for some great causes.
The first was in aid of Reprieve and was hosted at The Wallace Collection in London. There was only two artworks in the auction, a ceramic man by Grayson Perry, and a portrait by myself.Mine raised £2500 for the charity.
The second was in aid of The Hepatitis C Trust and hosted at Soho Revue. Art On A Postcard had works from some amazing artists, including:
Peter Blake, The Chapman Brothers, Michael Craig-Martin, David Shrigley, Andrew Salgado, Julian Opie, Polly Morgan, Harland Miller, Bob and Roberta Smith, Rowan Newton, David Bray, Ryca, and LOADS more.
This one is still open, and the works are viewable/ buyable online at this link:
