A few fortunate tour guests will know Stik as the very friendly gentleman with the paint splattered trousers who has joined us in the tour for a brief moment. Here is some news from Stik:
British street artist STIK’s iconic ‘Sleeping Baby’ print proofs will go on auction today at Christie’s South Kensington, London. The edition last year raised £50,000 for Homerton Hospital in London and this week the full set of four artists proofs will give an extra boost to the hospital with 100% of funds going to their charitable trust.
The ‘Sleeping Baby’ image represents the vulnerability of the NHS and has been adopted by the junior Doctor’s as the mascot of their industrial strike action. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of social history in the making.
The complete set of four screenprints in colours, 2015, on cream wove paper, each signed in pencil, inscribed AP 1/4, artist’s proof impressions aside from the edition of 25 in each colour, the full sheets, apparently in very good condition, unexamined out of the frames.
Image 590 x 1080 mm., Sheet 650 x 1120 mm. (each) (4)
Donated by the artist in aid of the Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Art Charitable Fund.
This lot is offered with a Certificate of Authenticity from the artist.
