(cut and paste from steal from works newsletter)

So, there are plenty of charity events, plenty of causes worth fighting for, whole countries at war…. But sometimes it’s just about helping your friends, helping those you love. And here we’re taking the opportunity to help one of our best friends.

If you don’t know, here’s the introduction. Rowdy is one of the longest standing players in UK graffiti, supporting the scene and playing his part in what has now turned into a global phenomenon. He has painted with the best of them, in fact is one of the best of them, always sticking true to his vision, rocking his own style, never selling out his ideas. Recently he walked out of his house, which also served as his studio and when he returned a half hour later, everything had been burned to the ground. EVERYTHING! ID, money,  clothes, personal possessions, art, the ability to make art, everything gone!

So, we’re taking this as an opportunity to support someone who has so readily supported us as a scene by auctioning some art to help him get back to a position where he can do what he does best, making art.

It’s a testament to his popularity and reputation that so many artists have donated work to this auction. All work has been personally donated by the artists and the galleries that represent them: Banksy, Paul Insect, Swoon, Sickboy, Hush, Espo, the whole Burning Candy crew and a whole bunch more… So, it’s your chance to buy something beautiful and at the same time help out someone who has helped in his way to make graffiti and street art what it is today.

The Auction

The Auction will be via e-bay at:

http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/stealfromwork

It will commence Thursday 17th June, and we will stagger the items over the next few days so they don’t all end together.

Crimes of Passion : Street Art in Bristol
21 March – 2 May 2009
In spring 2009, the Royal West of England Academy will host an exhibition of
Bristol Street Art, across all five of the large galleries and other public
spaces within the building. The last urban art exhibition hosted by a public
gallery in Bristol was a show entitled “Graffiti Art in Britain” at the
Arnolfini, over 20 years ago. This ambitious exhibition at the RWA and
associated projects which include installations and murals around the city,
film screenings, talks and a schools education programme, is therefore a long
overdue celebration of Bristol’s own talent in this field of visual art.

The development of Street Art in Bristol is now an internationally recognised
cultural and commercial phenomenon. The monetary value of Bristol artists’ work
has rocketed in the last two years through sales of originals and prints at
exhibitions, galleries and auctions. Street Art, or more specifically, Graffiti,
was brought directly to Bristol from America by artists and musicians who
travelled there from New York City in the early ‘80s. Graffiti artists active
on the Bristol scene at that time included Banksy, Nick Walker, Inkie and
Robert del Naja, or ‘3D’, of Massive Attack.

The exhibition will feature work by around 45 of Bristol’s most well-known and
notorious street artists, including internationally famous names. The curators
have carefully selected artists whose work is of the highest quality in terms
of realisation, design, execution or manufacture, which will show a real
cross-section of the kind of work being made by street artists in Bristol today
and the directions in which they are taking their work. Most of the artists
featured in this exhibition continue to make work in the urban environment.
Many have faced challenges from the law in the past for work that they have made
on illegal sites, while most now seek opportunities for making work in the public
domain using permitted sites.

‘Street Art’, ‘Urban Art’ and ‘Graffiti’ are all terms which encompass different
kinds of visual art work conceived and made in direct response to the artists’
own urban environment, often with a strong social or political context and usually
displayed outside of the traditional canons of fine art and design. This exhibition
will highlight the particular vibrancy and original creativity of Bristol artists.
We hope that in producing a show of this size and scale in a public gallery and
through our planned programme of talks, events and educational activities, the public
will see how this kind of art has begun to regenerate communities, challenging and
entertaining people for a positive social purpose.

The RWA has led the way in recognising the proper cultural value of Street Art as
one of Bristol’s leading exports. Through its physical form and content, the curatorial
team and artists involved intend that this exhibition will challenge all public
perceptions of what Street Art is and will stay in the mind of everyone who sees it
for years to come.

Artists included in the exhibition are:
Nick Walker, Filthy Luker, FLX, Sickboy, Cyclops, Rowdy, Inkie, Mr. Jago, Acerone,
Dicy, Feek, Ponk, Seza, Xenz, Ziml, Eco, Paris, Mudwig, What Collective, Cheo Soker,
Will Barras and Andy Council.
