LONDON.- Famous names, including Oscar-winning actor Olivia Colman, the comedian, actor and presenter Jo Brand, star DJ Fat Tony, the internationally acclaimed Pop Art painter Sir Peter Blake, singer-songwriter and guitarist Joan Armatrading and fashion designer Bella Freud will be attending a special evening invitation- only preview event at Bonhams Knightsbridge on 29 April in support of The Eve Appeal, a charity dedicated to protecting women from gynaecological cancers.

On view, will be the wonderful works which have been donated to the charity by artists such as Grayson Perry, Sara Pope, Anish Kapoor, Tomma Abts, Marc Quinn, Julian Opie and Patrick Hughes, and which are to be sold in a dedicated section of the Prints and Multiples Sale at Bonhams on Thursday 2 May in aid of the Eve Appeal.

Writing in the introduction to the sale catalogue, double Academy Award winner, Cate Blanchett said: “I am so pleased to support The Eve Appeal's art auction raising much-needed funds for the charity. Please join us in supporting The Eve Appeal's mission: raising awareness of the symptoms of gynaecological cancers and achieving a future where fewer women develop these. A future where more women survive gynaecological cancers"

Commenting on his work Banksy, which is included in the sale, estimated at £4,000-6,000, Patrick Hughes wrote: “I live and work in Shoreditch where Banksy has sprayed since about 2003. In this multiple, I can make brick walls turn and move up and down and left to right. Banksy’s graffiti is sprayed on to walls so it gives me the chance to put both walls and his art in my work.”

A full list of all the art works to be sold on behalf of The Eve Appeal, with images and quotes from some of the artists, can be found by following this link.

During the preview event, there will also be a live performance from the artist Sara Pope with the chance for attendees to print their own Lipstick Kiss.
