Follow Your Art

I went to a fantastic event last night - Follow Your Art - an auction and exhibition in aid of Anti-Slavery International, held at the spectacularly cool Village Underground in Shoreditch.

The space was epic, the works awesome, the people passionate.

Southeby's Lord Harry Dalmeny took his first trip "Out East" to preside over a highly entertaining and fantastically lucrative auction and had the whole room laughing and bidding and laughing and bidding some more, waving our glow stick auction paddles in the air.

I was stunned by Olek's crocheted tribute to Martin Luther King running along the pavement of Great Eastern Street.

A great night, with thousands raised for Anti Slavery International.  I sadly came home empty handed, but then we are very lucky in getting to see work by many of the artists involved on our walk to school each morning.  I love the East End.
