‘My Brighton Hotel’ and Oliver Dall of ‘Oliver’s Brighton’ join forces to help Sussex Homeless Support.
Oliver Dall is a man of many talents. Not only does he run the award winning Wizarding Shop – Oliver’s Brighton, at 42 Trafalgar Street, Brighton BN1 4ED, but he has a passion for helping vulnerable people on our streets and he has decided to exhibit and then auction his artwork to raise funds for Sussex Homeless Support.
Oliver is an Ambassador for Sussex Homeless Support. He is always coming up with new ways to raise money for our cause – he’s skydived and auctioned a Harry Potter chess set to raise funds for us.
This time, Oliver has linked with ‘My Hotel Brighton’ and from Monday 10th June, they will host an exhibition of Oliver’s work in their award winning Merkaba Cocktail Bar. The exhibition will culminate in the 40 pieces being auctioned off to the highest bidders on Friday 5th July. The auction starts at 7pm and everyone is welcome.
What is Oliver’s artwork like?
Before opening his wizarding shop, Oliver was an instant photographer for Fujifilm. He has always loved instant photos and Fujifilm commissioned him to explore creative ways of using their instant film. Oliver combined instant photos with printed digital work. The pieces being exhibited and auctioned are from Oliver’s private collection. The artwork subjects range from graffiti pieces to charismatic people and important landmarks of Brighton.
All of the artwork is printed in colour on a card mount, with sizes ranging from A4 to A3. Most pieces are framed and incredibly, the starting price for many of these pieces is just £10. An opportunity to own an affordable original piece and help the homeless of Brighton and Hove at the same time.
When and where is the exhibition?
The exhibition will run in the Merkaba Cocktail Bar at My Hotel Brighton from Monday, 10th June until the auction on Friday 5th July.
