This looks like a really interesting project from the good people at Steal From Work. Called Street Art Dealer, the project’s going to allow people to walk around the streets of Bristol and buy pieces by various artists by scanning a QR code on pieces painted on people’s walls.
So far Inkie, Chu, Dotmasters, Seus, Solo One and the Graffiti Research Lab are involved in the project, and they’ve got a blog to keep an eye on if you want to know more. They’re also looking for people’s walls to paint, so if you’re interested, check out their site.

A heads up for those who have the money and may be in the area in a couple of weeks, Inkie’s putting together an auction night in London to raise money for Great Ormond Street Cochlear Implant Unit and CICS.
It’s got the kind of line up that only someone like Inkie can put together, with names like 3D, Inkie, Banksy, Nick Walker and Goldie donating pieces, along with a whole load of other well known names from the graf and ‘urban’ worlds.
The auction itself is a ticket only affair with a three course dinner and the like, but there’s an after party for it too with people like the Scratch Perverts, Justin Robertson and ‘very very special guests’ playing. All the money from the night and the auction will be going to charity, so if you’re feeling flush, get down there for what should be a pretty special event.
