‘Roy’s People Art Fair introduces partnership with the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity, Centrepoint’
Roy’s People Art Fair 2018 will be partnering with leading youth homelessness charity, Centrepoint ‘To achieve this, the founders will be holding a silent auction throughout the duration of the fair’
Alongside the silent auction, to feature 5 artworks including work by the founders Roy Tyson & Sam Peacock, a special guest artist at the fair, Andrea Tyrimos, will also be creating a unique portrait and audio documentary of the life of an ex-centrepoint resident in her individual style featured in her recent solo show ‘Bipolar Picasso’
The first 2 events drew thousands to take part in the revolutionary artist- led art fair, pioneered by artists Sam Peacock and Roy Tyson. 80 carefully selected artists will be personally showcasing their pieces to the public during this free four-day event.
Tyson and Peacock founded the fair as a platform to offer their invaluable expertise and support to both emerging and established artists as they navigate the art world. Their focus is primarily on developing a community led spirit initiated by artists to connect directly with the public and promote both the artists’ and buyers’ interests first.
