Bentley Art Auction for Charity
text size: A- A+
In order to raise an important amount of money, the auction will include “a vast array of sculptures, painting, digital art and photography. Created in many different media, from sculptures in bronze and set in wood, to metal and leather, to Perspex, to palette knife and brush paintings on canvas, the works showcase the imagination of the men and women who design Bentley cars,” Bentley said.
Dirk van Braeckel, head designer, says the end result is the reflection "of the work we do technically with a passion for the brand that is very very strong in this team.”
"The team worked up some early ideas on sketches and pen and paper but everything else is all done on a computer," he says. "There has been a tremendous response from all the team from the day the idea was born. People have been doing additional work - after originally saying they would do one piece, they want to add more work."
The event held at Bonhams auction house in London has an invitation-only policy and will take place on Tuesday December 1 from 6pm to 8pm. All 40 pieces will be up for bidding on November 4 at www.bentleydesignpassion.com. The highest bidders will be invited to the auction house.
