ART FOR AFRICA 2016

Taking place at the Attic Bar on May 7th, Art for Africa will feature work by renowned artists such as Toaster, Dicy, Paris, 3DOM graffiti, Paul McGowan Artist, James Starr and Andy Council.

It has become an annual Bristol event run by the charity Temwa, it’s a little auction with a difference. This year we are excited to announce that we are now a part of the Bristol Food Connections Fringe Festival.

There will be over 70 pieces of artwork going under the hammer, from classical oil paintings to stencilled skate decks, alongside large contemporary canvases and screen prints, with estimated values ranging from £50 to £1200.

Over the last ten years, Temwa has grown and developed alongside the urban art scene, artists have become established on a world wide scale, and Temwa’s project have expanded to help thousands of people to dramatically change their lives.

Also, some of the urban art scene’s finest talents such as Toaster, Dicy, Paris, and many more will be doing some very exciting live painting on the day.

Funds raised from the collection will go towards our conservation projects. The projects work with the people of Malawi and offers sustainable and community-generated solutions to an interrelated set of challenges which includes deforestation, changeable river flows, land degradation, climate shocks, food insecurity and poverty.
