Art V Cancer is a new initiative run by Raid71, Chris Thornley and Julia Hall that sells original signed limited edition prints by Raid71 and more recently the artist Ben O’Brien (http://www.bentheillustrator.com) raising money for Cancer Charities. Having been diagnosed with a rare incurable non-hodgkins lymphoma, Raid71 decided to sell his artwork to be able to ‘give something back’ after receiving extensive treatment for his cancer. The project has grown and there are plans to have an Art V Cancer exhibition in the summer and to include more established artists. To date, Art V Cancer has raised £2500/$3999 for Cancer Charities, CALLM, Breast Cancer and Molar Pregnancy.
Raid71 is known for his iconic bmx illustrations, clever & often humorous portraits, parodies and film posters and was recently in the news due to being identified as the original designer of the Steve Jobs apple silhouette. This image caused controversy when Jon Mac’s image went viral.
Please take time to look at our website. We would love to feature on Moco Loco websites. We feel that Art V Cancer will appeal to Moco Loco’s audience. Any questions, please contact me, Julia Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
