Leading British artists unite against prostate cancer
Thursday 11 September 2008
More than 40 of Britain’s leading male artists have united in the fight against prostate cancer, donating their works for the Everyman Men Only exhibition to be held at Liberty in London from 8 to 11 September.
Artists Damien Hirst, Sir Peter Blake, Rankin, Patrick Hughes and Martin Parr are among those who have donated works to be auctioned in memory of sculptor Allister Bowtell who died of prostate cancer in 2006, aged 66.
All funds raised during an action, led by Nick Bonham will go towards world leading prostate cancer research at The Institute of Cancer Research’s Everyman Centre.
Renowned sculptor, film designer and model maker, Allister Bowtell, was one of the 35,000 British men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year, but sadly lost his battle.
“Allister and I were completely unaware of the plague amongst men until he was diagnosed with late stage prostate cancer,” Pat Scovell-Bowtell, Allister’s wife said.
