STIK - 4 A/P BABY prints to be auctioned at Christie's for Homerton Hospital

Category: Articles

At Global Art Traders, we think the artist STIK is fantastic. We have met him a few times and he always has time to chat and is very humble. Last year, he produced a print in aid of the University Homerton Hospital, in aid of their NHS foundation. Global Art Trader staff attended this event last year and witnessed the amazing sight of hundreds of people queing up overnight (for 18 hours) simply for the opportunity to buy one of the prints.

'Baby' was produced in 4 colours and a full set of STIK's own Artist Proofs are being sold off at the top auction house, Christies. The works are estimated at £2,000 to £3,000, however we estimate that the set of four could reach as much as £20,000. Stik explains “They are the first four artist proofs of the Sleeping Baby print which represents the vulnerability of the NHS. I had the silk-screen prints made especially to raise funds for Homerton Hospital. These are my artist’s proofs which I held back especially for this moment.”

He added: “Caring for the sick is the duty of our society not a business opportunity and should not be privatised. We need to keep it alive and look after it as if it were our baby.”

His popularity continue's to grow and his work is now being sought out by serious art collectors globally.

The auction of Stik’s Sleeping Baby takes place on 19 May at Christie’s 'Prints and Multiples' Visit www.christies.com for more details.
