The Art of Ping Pong: Grab yourself a bespoke paddle artwork or t-shirt for charity
The Art of Ping Pong is back for another year with its online charity auction running until the end of this month, where you can get your hands on another brilliant collection of paddle artworks from some of the world's most exciting artists, illustrators, and designers.
From established greats like George Hardie, who created the artwork for Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, to the new kids on the block like Mr. Doodle, the crazy new doodler, and other artists and designers such as Yoni Alter, Mr. Bingo, John Booth, Emma Brewin, Fred Butler, Alison Carmichael, Sebastian Coz, Emily Forgot, and many more.
The event, produced and curated by Algy Batten, is now in its fifth year. To keep 2017 fresh the organisers have added two of their own mini ping pong tables to the auction. These are painted by Charlie Oscar Patterson and the crazy doodler Mr. Doodle – who drew on his table live at the launch event.
The Art of Ping Pong has also partnered with Everpress to produce eight t-shirt designs. Six of this year's artists have repurposed their paddle design to work as a graphic tee with two of the designs created by the organisers themselves. All eight designs are priced at £20 each.
All money raised will go to Trekstock. Find out more and support the cause at theartofpingpong.co.uk. In the meantime, here are some contributions to this year's event.
