Bentley charity auction

Bentley have just hosted an exclusive art auction at Bonham’s, London,  to raise money for Manchester’s specialist cancer hospital The Christie. Any business-charity partnership is commendable, but this one is also pretty interesting from an art point of view. Some of the 40 lots were downright rubbish, but others are actually quite brilliant – we particularly like this one, made from aluminium, and some of the sculptures are pretty excellent.

Ranging from technical drawings to metal sculptures, all the pieces were done by Bentley’s car designers, who train in other mediums before being let loose on the cars themeselves. No details are available as yet as to how much was raised, but check back for further details. For now, just enjoy the work…
