LONDON’S Live Christmas Street Art Auction
Friday, December 7, 2007
Cargo, London, UK
If Banksy’s new art in Bethlehem is too much of a stretch for global art lovers, the UK’s seminal live contemporary and street art auction, Evolving Styles, returns to London this Christmas offering a rare chance to invest in works of art by the biggest names in the movement. In association with fashion label, Firetrap, original works by the likes of Blek le Rat, FAFI, Dave Kinsey, Faile, DAIM, Xenz and New York graffiti legends, DAZE and CRASH will go under the hammer, while audiences watch world-famous artists including the notorious Flying Förtress, paint canvases live which will be auctioned off on the same night for the world’s largest orphan charity, SOS Children.
On Friday, December 7, there will be exclusive appearances by German art duo, Herakut (GER), Bristol based Mr Jago (UK) and Flying Förtress (GER), who will be performing live at Cargo from 3p.m., with an auction commencing at 6p.m. Audiences can tune in from around the world to watch the live art auction, which will be broadcast in real-time over the internet to allow buyers to bid online via the auction site, www.evolvingstyles.com
An auction catalogue featuring the lots will be available for download via the Evolving Styles website. For further information, bidding instructions, artists and event news, please visit www.evolvingstyles.com
