An art exhibition will take place at the Resistance Gallery in Bethnal Green, London, on 2 August to raise money for the NAS. The evening will be held by artist and graphic designer, Matthew Doyle of the Raw Meat brand. The “Loading” exhibition is an evening of art dedicated to, and inspired by, video games from the 1970s to present day. Doyle’s own work will be featured along with over 50 other artists; two of whom will be painting live.
Doyle said: “After unleashing my inner nerd and love for video games, and combining it with my appreciation of the art world, it was inevitable that Loading would be the next Raw Meat exhibition.
“I decided to hold the event in aid of The National Autistic Society as I’ve seen firsthand the impact autism has on people’s lives. It’s a great to be able to mix business with pleasure and feel like you’re making a difference.”
In 2010, Doyle was involved in a serious motorbike accident, which left him bed-bound for eight months. In the bed opposite him was an inspirational boy with autism; so much so that as soon as Doyle was back on his feet, he started volunteering at a school for children with autism.
Venue: Resistance Gallery, 265 Poyser Street, Bethnal Green, London, E2 9RF
