Rooftop Burner Fund – Auctions have started on E-Bay

July 1, 2010

These auctions are all about an artist called Rowdy.   You may or may not know him or his work but you will have no doubt seen his trademark crocodiles.   His career has been relentless; establishing in 1987 when he became an integral part of the Bristol graffiti scene  and in which he is still remains instrumental.

We have had the pleasure of working with Rowdy and he has become a good friend of ours and so were obviously devastated to hear when, recently left his house, (and studio) for a walk, he returned just half hour later, to find everything had been burned to the ground. EVERYTHING! ID, money,  clothes, personal possessions, art, the ability to make art, everything gone!

We realise that there are a whole host of charitable causes worth fighting for, countries that have suffered huge natural disaster who need aid,  but there are times too when friends need help and so for the next couple of weeks there are a number of art auctions on e-bay, organised by Steal from Work and Burning Candy.  All profit will go towards helping Rowdy get back on his feet and start over and to support someone who has so readily supported us as a scene by auctioning some art to help him get back to a position where he can do what he does best, making art.

It’s a testament to his popularity and reputation that so many artists have donated work to this auction. All work has been personally donated by the artists and the galleries that represent them: Banksy, Paul Insect, Swoon, Sickboy, Hush, Espo, the whole Burning Candy crew and a whole bunch more… So, it’s your chance to buy something beautiful and at the same time help out someone who has helped in his way to make graffiti and street art what it is today.

The auctions have started but there is still plenty of time to bid on the current auctions plus a promise of more to follow so go and check them out.

The Mercy Centre Foundation Appeal

September 23, 2008

During the last few months three lowly sketch pads have been making their way around the country and pitching up at the studios and homes of some very well recognised artists.  Their once empty pages are now over flowing with paintings from –

 

Mr Jago                                                   

Chinamike

Guy Denning

Grafter                                              

Rourke

Jef Aerosol

Beejoir
Matt Small                            

Miss Bugs
Goldie                            

Mau Mau
Hush                 

Neverwork
Brian Jones

Dale Grimshaw
Herakut                 

Case
SPQR     

WeLikeStatic
Nick Walker

 

These sketch pads have now made their way back to the place where it all began, but this is not the end of the journey, they have one final trip to make and it could be to your house!

 

The pads are to be auctioned in October in order to raise funds for the Mercy Centre Foundation who work to help the children and communities of the many slums of Bangkok.  You could win an incredibly rare piece of art and help an extremely worthwhile cause.

All that’s left to say now is good luck and thanks to all that take part in the auction and of course to Neil (aka Harveyn) and Ged who have set up and organised this fund-raiser.
