Art Preview: 'Up My Street' Charity Auction For Shelter

Want to buy fantastic works of art and help the homeless? Do both by bidding in Shelter's ‘Up My Street’ fundraising art auction.

40 artists, photographers and designers –- including Jake and Dinos Chapman, Grayson Perry and Antony Gormley — have contributed works to be auctioned off. Each piece of art is inspired by a particular street that holds an emotional connection for the artist.

Tracy Griffin, Shelter’s Director of Fundraising, said: “In these tough times homelessness really can happen to anyone. We hope that people will get bidding to help us raise vital funds.”

You can preview all the artworks online here in order to decide which you'd like to go for. Bidding starts today.

If you’re unsuccessful or simply want to see the artworks in person, they’ll be on display from 5-8 March at Coningsby Gallery, 30 Tottenham Street W1T 4RJ. Entrance is free.
