About the book

In April 2020, @Background_Bob, and his Dad sat down to do some painting. They knew a few street artists from their love of the art and visiting street art festivals and so posted on Instagram to ask if anyone wanted to collaborate on producing some pieces for a charity auction. Around 250 artists from around the world replied and work is still arriving!

By popular demand, a book has been created bringing together all the work received prior to the deadline. This is an inclusive project. Everyone who took part is featured including, My Dog Sighs, Anna Schellberg, Pez, Trust.iCON, Carne Griffiths, Silent Bill, Dank, Toaster, Eelus, Penny, Snub, Mason Storm, JPS, Heath Kane, Ange Bell and Background Bob’s mum and dad.

Thanks to the kindness of the artists, 100% of the profits from the book are coming straight to us. They will specifically benefit the Children’s Department at Colchester Hospital.

This feel-good art book is an essential for art lovers and a perfect Christmas gift for anyone. Be part of a positive global movement.
