Are you a James Bond fan who loves art? We have something you’ll love.
‘007 - To Paint A Deadly Picture’ is an exhibition of contemporary art celebrating Ian Fleming’s original James Bond series, as well as the as the most recent 007 continuation novels written by Kidscape Patron Anthony Horowitz.
The artworks have been newly commissioned by social enterprise Eazl from a carefully selected roster of emerging and mid-career artists from the UK and beyond. Participating artists include Threadneedle Prize finalists David Storey and Tomas Tichy, the Australian painter Marc Freeman, and the prize-winning illustrator Finn Dean.
The pieces are each inspired by a specific scene, theme or character from a James Bond novel.
The exhibition is part of a wider project organised by Eazl, with the kind permission of Ian Fleming Publications and was originally displayed at Bletchley Park last summer.
An auction of these fantastic pieces of art is now open. All profits from the auction will be shared between three charities including Kidscape. Take a look at the art, and bid for your favourite piece!
