Urban Artist Soap’s iconic Mandela portrait to raise funds for Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund UK

WHAT Urban Artist Soap’s iconic Mandela portrait to raise funds for Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund UK
WHEN  29th April 2015 
WHERE   The Union Club Greek Street 

I'm excited to announce the forthcoming charity event with Urban Artist Soap in association with The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund.

The Union Private Members Club in Soho, London will kindly play host to an intimate drinks reception from 6.30pm on the 29th courtesy of Antica Casa Vinicola Garofoli wines, followed by a live spray demo together with a rare Q&A with the artist. Discover how Soap creates his photo-realist pieces with only sprays and airbrushes.

Soap created a portrait of Mandela as a part of an ICONS series that he is creating for a new show in Southern Europe this year and it caught the eye of the charity. Soap decided to donate the original piece to the charity to help them raise monies for this amazing cause. The event is a ticketed one and Adam (aka Urban Artist Soap) will not only be doing a live paint demo and rare Q&A, but he will also be present for the public auction of this one off piece. Soap’s work is very diverse but he is noted for his captivating portraits of Dizzee Rascal, Jamie Campbell Bower, Florence and the Machine, Ed Sheeran, Felix da Housecat and Rihanna amongst others.

Having captured unique images of legendry musicians like Louis Armstrong to iconic leaders including Martin Luther King, he is now portraying another generation from Plan B and Rizzle Kicks to Professor Green and Jamie Campbell Bower.
This event will not only allow you to see the artist in action, but gives you a chance to take home his original Mandela portrait in a private auction of this one-off piece of work. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the late South African President’s charity. 

Urban Artist Soap (aka Adam Klodzinski) said; “Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund is a fantastic charity that I am proud to support. Nelson Mandela was a hero of mine who believed in freedom, and caring for the most vulnerable in society. I hope to raise thousands of pounds for his charity to support children living in poverty in Southern Africa.

Kathi Scott, Executive Director at Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund UK, said; “We are so grateful to Adam for arranging this event and auctioning off his wonderful artwork in aid of the charity. The much-needed proceeds from the evening will help disadvantaged children and young people in Southern Africa access education, healthcare and better futures.”
