New Street/Urban/Contemporary Art Auctions @ solidARTy.org

Memento Mori book launch at Rampa Prenestina, Rome(IT) 2015 ©BlindEyeFactory 4

We previously reported about refugee art charity fundraiser project, solidARTy.org, and we’re happy to see they are continuing their work in 2016. After taking a break over the holidays they just started a new batch of auctions, offering rare, original and edition street/urban/contemporary artwork.

The pieces offered were mainly donated by the artists themselves and are priced 50-70% of their retail value. From original pieces made especially for this cause to rare copies of sold out editions, this is a very unique opportunity to add something special to your collection. Previously auctioned works included original works by the likes of Escif, Ernest Zacharevic, Miaz Brothers, Fintan Switzer, Lonac, Rustam Qbic, Pez, etc, as well as editions by Martin Whatson, Icy & Sot, Sandra Chevrier, Fintan Magee, Pastel, Curiot, Ella & Pitr, etc. The funds raised were forwarded to Are You Syrious? initiative and used to buy food and shoes for the refugees, distribute help along the Balkan refugee route, finance the voyage of a Syrian family from Athens to Croatia and buy necessities for the New Year’s presents for the refugee kids. The new auctions include a copy of the latest sold out print by Vhils, an exclusive pack from Borondo that includes a book, a sketch and unique print on metal from his book release show in Rome, original pieces by Know Hope, Laura Keeble & Candice Tripp, Bordalo II, Daan Botlek, Rene Gagnon, 2Alas, Fraco Fasoli, Femke Hiemstra and many more.

NO AD – Jordan Seiler Interview

Off the back of his awesome bus-shelter keys initiative, PublicAdCampaign, Jordan Seiler is taking back the streets and taking on the ads in the virtual world as well as the physical. Pioneering the way for real-life ad blockers, Jordan has spent years researching and mapping out all the New York subway adverts so they can easily be digitally replaced by a carefully curated selection of art from over 50 (and growing) different international artists. We spoke to him to get the lowdown on his subversive new app: NO AD.

BRUTAL

The Lazarides team have put together their annual off-site exhibition, a sensory feast only suitable for the brave and forward thinking.

“BRUTAL explores the brutality of the times we live in, how this is reflected in the objects around us and our perception of the world. With a chilling new central London location for this year’s creative carnage, the roster of artists are set to produce their most brutal works to date, incorporating installation, sculpture and film bigger and bolder than ever before.”

Housed in an abandoned building on 180 The Strand, with work from Antony Micallef, Ben Woodeson, Brad Downey, Bill McRight, Cleon Peterson, Conor Harrington, DALeast, Doug Foster, Estevan Oriol, James Lavelle, Katrin Fridriks, Karim Zeriahen, Know Hope, Lucy McLauchlan, Mark Jenkins, Miaz Brothers, Pose, Robert Hylton, Sebastian Horsley and Todd James.

This is one not to miss and runs from 15th – 27th October, 12-9pm. You can book your place here. If you still need persuading check out these brilliant photos from www.wallkandy.net
