Till July 8th, around 600 postcard sized works by contemporary and street art talents are presented in the heart of Shoreditch in London, the European hub of graffiti. Accompanying the show, an online secret auction takes place via Paddle8, with the opening bid for all artworks at £50 and without revealing the identity of the artists until the sale closes.

Curated by the urban artist Ben Eine and the documentary photographer Dougie Wallace, the exhibition goes beyond the love for art by pursuing the main objective of fighting the battle against hepatitis C. All of the proceeds indeed are donated to The Hepatitis C Trust’s campaign to eliminate the disease by 2025, creating a community of people, that either have hepatitis C or have been healed from it, able to stand up providing information and active support.
