Hey guys, gather round! Something actually good is happening in the world! Let's hang onto it with all our strength. The Art of Banksy exhibition that has been on display in the "dodgy car park behind the good car park behind Fed Square" (according to the exhibition team) for the past few weeks has begun to auction off works of art by Melburnian street artists for charity.
In conjunction with the Banksy exhibition, 14 prominent local artists were invited to display their work alongside the exhibition. The lineup includes Bailer, Be Free, Conrad Bizjak, Dvate, George Rose, Heesco, Jack Douglas, Makatron, Mike Eleven, Psalm, Putos, Ruskidd, Sirum and 23rd Key. Their dedicated works are being auctioned off and the proceeds are being donated to STREAT and Melbourne City Mission, two kickass charities who work with local people who are homeless.
See? There's good in the world.
Simultaneously donating to charity and buying cool art? Yes you can. Check out the auction here.
