If owning a Klinko wasn’t incentive enough, there are a million other reasons to participate in Paddle8’s upcoming online auction. From April 13th through April 27th, celebrity photographer Markus Klinko will collaborate with the Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research to curate a philanthropic auction. Here are a few reasons why you don’t want to miss out.
Markus Klinko is an award-winning international photographer and director who has worked with many of today’s most iconic stars of film, music, and fashion. One of these stars was and is the incredibly iconic David Bowie. Check out one of our favorite selections here. The Paddle8 auction will feature a private collection of never-before-seen photographs of the late artist. This selection will include outtakes from Klinko and Bowie’s over fifteen-year professional relationship. Klinko was responsible for Bowie’s iconic album cover Heathen, as well as Bowie’s seminal GQ photo shoot with live wolves.
Klinko’s traveling exhibit “Bowie Unseen” was featured in the prestigious Art Basel in Switzerland earlier this year and will travel to the Art New York Fair held at Pier 94 on May 3rd to May 8th.
Beyond bringing back the memory of the impactful David Bowie, the auction will also benefit the patients who rely on Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation. “The purpose of Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research is to encourage the development of more effective therapies for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and related cancers. The Foundation funds innovative clinical or basic science research that will lead to novel therapeutic approaches that could replace, or be used in combination with existing effective therapies. Such therapeutic approaches could include alternative or complementary medicine,” as said in their mission statement.
Don’t miss out on a chance to own a piece of art history and help the future of cancer treatment!
