SUPPORTING ART AGAINST KNIVES

The charity Art Against Knives have produced a series of 3 designer T-Shirts to add to their online shop and as I was lucky to help backstage I got to contribute in advertising to a fabulous cause. I bought one of these T-Shirts as well XD  The design is made by Fred Butler Style, a polka dot sticker collage artwork on a pair of butterfly wings. It is meant to be physcadelic and as colourful as possible to brighten up any wardrobe. It surely brightens my wardrobe now..... It was £20 when i bought mine and the profits will go to fund AAK amazing work in youth-led arts initiatives providing an alternative to violent gang culture. AAK works to reduce the root causes of knife crime after the tragic and unprovoked stabbing of Oliver Hemsley, a 21-year-old student from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design. The vicious attack, which has left Oliver in a wheelchair, took place in Shoreditch, East London, in August 2008. It is the impact of this that drives Art Against Knives to create something positive from such a life-changing experience.
