BD Network x Art Against Knives Charity Art Exhibition at BoxPark.
Creative outfit, BD Network are collaborating with the youth-led charity, Art Against Knifes to present The BD Creatures Exhibition, a unique and special exhibition launching May 31.
The event is set to showcase a range of imaginative creature illustrations at the BoxPark Gallery, with the limited edition first prints available on launch night, and the exhibition itself running through to June 14 with all proceeds going to Art Against Knives.
The collaboration which led to exhibition is down to the passion and creativity of two people; James Newport and Jenny Hemsley, employees of BD.
Jenny’s brother-in-law Oliver Hemsley’s stabbing was to trigger the creation of the charity and her interest in their good work since it began in 2008 initiated her interest in combining the two forces.
The designer behind the prints for the exhibition is BD Creative James Newport, who began creating the creatures independently. After chatting to Jenny he soon released his creatures could help for the eventual formation of The Creatures Exhibition.
Katy Dawe, founder of Art Against Kinves explains, “We are incredibly fortunate to have the support of BD, who share our belief in the importance of providing platforms to support local young creative talent. The collaboration has allowed us to facilitate sustainable opportunities and create professional relationships between young people and the creative industries on their doorstep.”
A good cause and a great opportubity to purchase some decent prints. GET. INVOLVED.
