Art Auction for the Homeless Tower Fire


Become a Patron! 

This group is set up to help the homeless from the Grenfell Tower fire, we are calling upon artists to donate works for the auction; for now, you could pledge a work and register your interests in helping. The plan is to have an art auction with the proceeds to go to the Homeless from the Grenfell Tower fire.
We will be discussing plans for the auction, which we would like to hold as soon as possible – so getting galleries and auction houses interested would be good.
Do please make suggestions and how you could help either as a volunteer or donating works for the auction or both. It is likely that we would work through one of the charities heavily involved already.

so far the list of contributing artist that have pledged works, listed works or already have sent works as follows

Universe of Eternal Nothingness

Anselm Kiefer – Walhalla

White Cube

Upon entering the White Cube, visitors are filed into the show, where security hands them a warning letter; a disclaimer that they enter at their own risk. It is a gateway to another dimension; everything is in a solid state — even the air, the void is thick with lead. Anselm Kiefer’s prophetic vision of the cataclysmic future, the Trumpian mentality triumphing over reason, with its futile exertion to accumulate stockpiles of golden nuggets; in this place, such concepts becomes meaningless as is life and death or good and evil.

a warning letter; a disclaimer that they enter at their own risk. It is a gateway to another dimension;

In some nooks and crannies, the gold may shine, interspersed amongst debris leftovers from the apocalypse. There is no one to value it or mine it for any purpose. The family is in a room, with the couples on the “Kingsize bed” congealed into a big molten blob, their soul frozen in mid-flight, there is no heaven to escape to, the angels’ wings are feeble. Their children and pets turned into cute little boulders. Here, is devoid of time-dimension, all eerily stand still.

the couples on the “Kingsize bed” congealed into a big molten blob, their soul frozen in mid-flight there is no heaven

In the archival vault, a dense atmosphere is entombed. The total sum of knowledge, science, history, and art; pulverised to smithereens.

Maybe noticeable is the protruding barrel of a machine gun made from some exotic material spared destruction; it stands out looking shiny and new. An ineffectual instrument of death, that has lost its purpose, with no one left to operate it, kill or train upon. Its archivist aptly labelled it “Nothing”, so thus only a whimsical relic.

The crafty serpent (The Devil) – is no more In this universe

Here, the “Garden of Eden” has been turned on its head, the “Apple Tree” phosphorised to ashen white, with all its branches dry, no fruits or leaves, barren to its roots. The crafty serpent, (The Devil), is no more. In this universe, there is no place for playful Biblical interactions. The dark angel drained of all its cunningness turned into a rusty mush suspended in a state of eternal boxed nothingness.

World-class art framer and fabricator Mark Darbyshire and product designer Steve Cooke ended up in discussion and working with each other towards quality-improvement and problem-solving to technology for artwork authentication, provenance history and property protection.

That’s what led to Tagsmart coming about.

Tagsmart for artwork authentication, provenance history and property protection.

Then, came the addition to this venture of CEO Lawrence Merritt (former PhotoBox, Yahoo!, etc) and support from a dedicated board, so Darbyshire-Cooke branched out and grew, involving leaders from the worlds of security, art conservation, software and materials science.

Tagsmart at London Art Fair 17

Before too much later, the Tagsmart equation got entered by none other than Hercules Fisherman. For those unfamiliar, Hercules Fisherman is a veteran (but never “established” or “formula” — always progressing and innovatory!) independent renaissance polymath of many parts. Multimedia visual artist, exhibition and event originator and presenter, publisher and technologist. All-around and adventurous creator and entrepreneur. While also advisor and consultant in these and other fields. As well as being active and diversifying, Fisherman’s track record has been and still is well covered and documented. Yet another facet is being Tagsmart official brand ambassador.


After promotion, launch event appearances and much positive exposure at London Art Fair in Islington’s Business Design Centre — as one of the sponsors of the art fair attended by over 20,000 visitors — Tagsmart’s next manifestation is during the Chinese New Year of 2017,

The map of China has been said to resemble a chicken. We are about to enter the Year of the Rooster.

Chinese Open this time is named Le Coq, 2017 (Year Of The Rooster), with over 100 artists invited from various practices in art, painting, sculpture, performance and music installations. And curated by Montague Armstrong, in association with The Geoff Leong Foundation, taking place Q-Park, Whitcomb Street, in Central London’s Chinatown District.

With the opening private view this Sunday and a closing party next Sunday, It is open daily from Jan 29th Till 5th of Feb.

Hercules will be live painting — in his distinct and special pop-up atelier style drawing traditional Sumi Painting — using his much-loved Ironing Board support — which he has chosen and pioneered as an ideal adjustable worktop surface on which to create artwork.

Each portraiture made shall have a Rooster-themed 3D Scan — and will be 3d printed on site with scanner and printer courtesy of and sponsored by

3DScanbot — who have already 3d scanned more than 5,000 figures and portraits at many local and international events.

There will be a feedback terminal supplied by DrVoxx a startup originated in Australia who has been collecting voice of customers at public places and international destinations for a few of years. One such location at Brisbane Airports where DrVoxx system gathers and gauge customer satisfactions in real-time with actionable insights on the data collected, it is a first time being applied for collecting visitors feedback in an exhibition context.

Roosters are persuasive, wile and vigilant. Strutting and crowing, they wake up the world.

Installation/light/sound/art/movement/robots/roosters and anti-roosters. Science, construction, art and creation taking place in the deepest floors of an undercity car park beneath Leicester Square.

Roosters are energetic and loud, calling the world to attention. What have we missed? Are we still asleep, dreaming the planet into another dimension?

The 4th Chinese Open is a multimedia arts event which takes place on two levels of this modern multi-storey underground car park

Established by Vanya Balogh and supported by arts patron Geoffrey Leong, it will feature over 100 international creatives and new works in all media including performative live acts and site-specific video and sound installations.

This year’s event is curated by artists Montague Armstrong.

Opening party will take place on Sunday from 12 until 6 pm. Soho will be closed to traffic and we highly recommend a brisk walk from Chinatown to view this exquisite show presented in a unique setting.
