MICK ROCK releases 5 never-seen-before images of pop culture icons


West Contemporary announces the release of 5 never-seen-before images by Mick Rock featuring David Bowie, Kate Moss, Bryan Ferry, Freddie Mercury and Syd Barrett, in limited edition photographic fine art prints available to buy online at www.west-contemporary.com/buy-art.

The London-based art consultancy was due to exhibit works by Mick Rock in London, though due to the global pandemic, an alternative way to get the works out there became necessary. Mick Rock will donate 20% of all print sales to West Contemporary’s #MasksforNHS fundraiser, which has been set up to purchase as many FFP3 masks as
possible from HCE who will then deliver them directly to the hospitals in need, at this critical time whilst coronavirus sweeps the globe.

DISCOUNT: In addition to the 20% of profit going to West Contemporary’s #MasksforNHS fundraiser, Mick has also made these 5 new images in smaller edition numbers than the rest of his images, and buyers can enjoy a 20% discount compared his usual prices / RRP.

Mick Rock recalls how the NHS are, like David Bowie and many others he’s photographed, an important and hugely iconic part of British culture and British history.

He also has family living in the UK and says the NHS have always been there for every single person living in the UK: “The NHS have always been there for me growing up in the UK and for all members of my family, which is why I want to donate 20% of sales of my new works to this amazing fundraiser West Contemporary have set up. If this virus is a reminder of anything, it’s how much we need the NHS. They are our lifeline. We owe them every effort we can think of to protect their own lives whilst they are protecting the lives of others.”

West Contemporary and Mick Rock also urge the public to donate any amount they can to the fundraiser, no matter how small. The fundraiser URL is https://www.gofundme.com/f/raise-money-tobuy-masks-for-nhs-staff-from-hce
