In My Line of Sight (Official Video) http://tinyurl.com/yxvjccfo. Whilst exclusively admiring amazing art of some of the most famous artists in the world today, in giving homage to Migrate Art!
Multicolour, a new exhibition and auction by Migrate Art, is fundraising to support those affected by the global refugee crisis. Some of the most significant names in contemporary art have created works using pencils and crayons salvaged from the Calais Jungle refugee camp, formerly home to a community of approximately 10,000 refugees, demolished in 2016. From March 20th - 31st, these works will be on view in a dedicated exhibition at Cork Street Galleries before they are sold as part of Phillips’ ‘New Now’ sale in early April and also online via partnerships with Artsy and MyArtBroker.com.

“The Migrate Art auction is a very creative approach enabling people to help with a desperate worldwide problem”- Rachel Whiteread
90% of profits from the sale will be donated equally to Migrate’s key charity partners – RefuAid, Refugee Community Kitchen, The Lotus Flower and The Worldwide Tribe. 10% will go towards future Migrate Art projects.
“Whether or not today’s refugees are fleeing from political or economical trouble, I identify with, and have great empathy for the sense of displacement they must feel. The only way I can express my true feelings is through my art - as a means of release and escapism - so I am happy to be contributing to the Migrate project in aid of this worthwhile cause”
