Graffle

There’s a whole lot of charity around at christmas, and none better at the moment than ‘Graffle‘, a project selling raffle tickets for art to raise money for Bristol children’s charities.

Just took some friends down to the 12 days of xmas show, and saw them setting up the pieces for the launch night tonight.

Here’s a rather lovely Mr Jago original from back in the day, Jago recently found it buried away apparently.

But here’s what i suspect will get people buying tickets from far afield, a Banksy piece from his L.A. show.

There’s also a Nick Walker ‘Morning After’ (Bristol) print, a Mau Mau piece, and loads of other artists too. I thought from the website that Xenz might have had a piece in there too, but his contribution was the stuff already sold out on the walls of the 12 days show itself.

The raffle will work by drawing a winning ticket from a hat, then drawing the name of a piece from another hat, until all pieces are gone. So it’s pot luck what you get, and you can’t just buy tickets for, say, the Banksy piece, which is a shame as i would have put some money towards getting the Jago. Who knows, maybe some more money could be raised by winners donating a fee to have swops arranged between each other?
