Four of Sydney’s leading street artists have collaborated to raise money for Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE), a charity supporting disadvantaged youth in Western Sydney.
Four works from the artists will be sold to the highest bidder at a charity art auction event held by Cockle Bay Wharf and aMBUSH Gallery, with auctioneer Anne Phillips from Bay East Auctions, at The Star Court, Darling Park on Thursday 20 May in Sydney.
The four artists – Ben Frost, Shannon Crees, Beastman and Phibs – collaborated as part of Cockle Bay Wharf’s Project 5 live art event in December last year, producing vibrant urban artworks on large 2.4m x 1.0m panels.
The resulting works, which incorporate graffiti, collage, photorealism and sign-writing will be auctioned off at Darling Park on Thursday May 20 from 6pm to 8pm to raise funds for ICE, with 100% of proceeds going to creative programs at ICE for young people.
From Bill Dimas of aMBUSH Gallery:
“Street art has flourished globally with artists such as Banksy and Fafi gaining enormous following and exposure. The Australian industry is also recognising the cultural significance and value of its own talent and we are seeing an increasing demand commercially for street and urban artworks”
