Not only did 2020 see the postponement of exhibitions, grad shows and pub drinks, it also halted the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Teenage Cancer Trust’s Royal Albert Hall shows – the yearly event of performances and music that aims to raise money for young people going through treatment. A year later and the charity is finally celebrating as it presents One Of A Kind, an exhibition and auction taking place at Maddox Gallery in Westbourne Grove this week. Curated by Tom Hingston, the acclaimed graphic designer has commissioned 21 artworks from 21 designers, including Matty Bovan, Anthony Burrill, Nick Cave, David Shrigley, Liam Hodges, Kai & Sunny, and James Joyce, among others. All of the works involved have been screen printed and are now up for auction, with an exhibition running until Saturday 31 July.

As for the artworks specifically, Anthony Burrill has contributed a YOU&ME&ME&YOU graphic featuring a bold red typeface, while David Shrigley has submitted an eight-colour screen print of a basketball with text detailing, “The world. Hard to predict what it will do”. Chrissie Abbott and Kae Tempest have produced Lonely Daze, a colourful typographic piece stating “Eyes full of evenings spent in a dream”; while fashion designer Matty Bovan has created an illustrated piece titled Eyes Upward; and Nick Cave has contributed a sketched mermaid that writes “I believe in God, and I believe in mermaids too.” Other works see the merging of art and music, as seen in the piece titled Keep On from Smith, Lyall and The Chemical Brothers; as well as Warren du Preez, Nick Thornton Jones and Björk’s artwork Haeckel.

Tom Hingston is a notable designer and founder of Hingston Studio, famed for his collaborations with musicians in producing countless album covers, promotional art and music videos for the likes of The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Grace Jones, Massive Attack and more. Since 2018 Tom has been working with the Teenage Cancer Trust Charity. “Music is in the DNA of Teenage Cancer Trust and One Of A Kind is a true celebration of our established links with the music industry,” says Tom in the release. “The funds raised will be a real lifeline for young people with cancer, many of whom have been at particular risk from coronavirus, and have faced more uncertainty and isolation than ever before.”

The works are currently on display at Maddox Gallery, Westbourne Grove, London from 23 – 31 July, and are open to bidding here.
