My David Bowie pen and ink portrait will be on show in the 'Drawing Dave' Exhibition and will be available for purchase by silent auction to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer UK.
Following the death of the ‘Only Fools and Horses’ star Roger Lloyd Pack in 2014, Pancreatic Cancer UK launched a national fundraiser ‘Call Everyone Dave Day’ inspired by the character that Roger famously played.
In continuation of the success of the 'Call Everyone Dave Day' the 'Drawing Dave' exhibition is an exhibition of famous Daves drawn by artists, illustrators and celebrities from across the globe. Co-curated by Dan Genders and Trevor Pitt the exhibition will take place at the Secret Cellar; an intimate gallery space beneath the Aceface Barbers on Bristol Street, Birmingham.
The public will be able to view the exhibition at the Secret Cellar from 10th to 14th May 2016 and following the exhibition all the artwork will be available to buy via an eBay auction with all the funds going directly the charity!
My pen and ink portrait of David Bowie has been giclee printed onto 310g.s.m Hahnemühle German Etching paper which is a heavyweight etching board and is one of the most popular media worldwide for artwork & photography. Giclee printing ensures a good long archival life expectancy of 40 years in daylight and 200 years in dark.
Other Daves on show include David Lynch by Peter Strain and David Bowie by Helen Green.
