For the first time in its 250 year history, we snuck into Sotheby’s with D*Face to graffiti the gallery ahead of the Against the Wall sale, and we have exclusive footage!  This is a world first for a work of art created from scratch within Sotheby’s

In partnership with leading men’s health charity, the Movember Foundation, Sotheby’s are showcasing an exhibition offering ten powerful new works from the world’s most prolific street artists. Harnessing the distinct urban style for which they are famed, each artist has created an agenda-setting piece motivated by, and aimed at nurturing, open conversations surrounding men’s mental health and suicide prevention.

Titled “Against the Wall” the D*Face mural attached was created in the run up to this ‘Contemporary Curated’ exhibition. Dean Stockton, commonly known as D*Face has been a leading figure in Urban Contemporary Art for over 15 years and is one of the best known figures to rise from the British scene.

The bold works will go on view to the public in Sotheby’s London galleries on 20th November at 10am and proceeds will benefit the Movember Foundation and their dedicated investment in ground-breaking mental health programmes.

The mural alongside the 9 curated works can be viewed in person at Sotheby’s Bond Street galleries on the below dates:

Friday 16th: 9am – 4.30pm

Saturday 17th: 12 noon – 5pm
