The Australian bushfires decimated the country for the latter part of 2019 into 2020 and in order to raise awareness for those impacted, an art exhibition will be held later this month.

RISE, an exhibition that is the brain child of Luca Ionescu, Anna Hunt and Matty Burton, will curate and auction off pieces of art created using charcoal gathered from the burnt trees in the New South Wales region.

The list of artists include over 100 recognizable names including Andy Howell - who's own art and collection was the victim of California fires - Shepard Fairey, Jose Parla, Eric Haze, Jeff Staple, ESPO, Mr. Cartoon, James Jean and more.

The silent auction will run from March 11-20 online and an opening night fundraiser event will be held on March 12 at Carriageworks in Australia. RSVP is required and available now, to learn more about the RISE Exhibition and see the full list of artists participating and the charities being supported, visit riseexhibition.com.
