Yesterday in Hackney Wick at the Number 90 bar in Hackney Wick a day of live Street Art, music and a silent auction comprising works donated by generous London based street artists, all to raise money for the charity Parkinson’s UK took place. A great event was laid on with a superb collection of works donated by street artists for the cause, available to bid on via an online silent auction. In addition to this there was also a series of boards being painted live throughout the afternoon and evening. Event organizer Tom Paul Maya will also be running the marathon for his uncle who past away last year to Parkinson’s. In all it was an incredible event, comprising of a beautiful and friendly atmosphere in a lovely location along the canal. The were plenty of people in attendance throughout the event and as the minutes drew in to the end of the auction, one could sense the excitement and tension as an eager crowd attempted to win the work of their choice. Whether people were lucky or not to get the work they wanted, we think its fair to say that a great day was had by all their. A great day for a great cause. Here are but a few of the works on offer in the silent auction.
