London Calling - LA

Artwork in return for your donations - 30 talented London artists need your generosity


Our Story - a real Investment in Art

We are a group of 30 UK artists who have been selected to exhibit at the prestigious Orange County Centre for Contemporary Art, bringing some of the UK’s top emerging artists to California. (Dec 21st – Jan 12th).

The list of artists reads like a who’s who of the young, London art scene, including Rosie Emerson, Tahnee Lonsdale, and Agnetha Sjogren. Works by these and other collectible artists are available to you here as part of the fundraising campaign: Our 'perks' in return for your donations are listed to the right, or we have opened an online shop here with more range: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LondonCalifornia

We are a very talented group, pushing the boundaries of the art world even in a time when it is hard to get arts funding to make shows like this happen. To enable the first Museum show of the London art scene in California, we need your help.

The Impact

This is a very exciting and potentially career expanding opportunity for all the artists that have been selected, and will also enable us to help raise support for OCCCA which develops and actively participates in public educational, outreach and community art services. 

Your contributions, big or small, will be helping on many levels.

We are not just shipping work to California – we are providing an interactive, performative presence. We will be turning heads! In order to achieve this we are aiming for as many of us as possible to travel to the show.

What We Need & What You Get

We would love for you to help make this possible - and as we are an extremely talented bunch of lovely artists we have some incredible "perks" to let you know grateful we are for your help!

The artists have kindly donated some stunning art pieces which can be yours if you contribute to this campaign. These artworks are usually at least twice the ‘contribution price’ listed here, so this is really an incredible opportunity to get some original artworks for a fraction of the price – a very rare opportunity with this calibre of artist, and it is only possible for the duration of this campaign. (Any works not claimed will be returning to their original price). More details below.


The closer you help us get to our funding target of $9000 (£5000), the more of us will actually be able to get over there and give a taste of British art to California, as well as ship the artwork.

Details:  What we have for you

Firstly we are offering limited edition artwork postcards signed by the artists. 50 of each design will be created to make up this exclusive collection.

Now that's pretty good in itself but we have a really incredible opportunity for you as well: All the artists are offering original works of art! This is a fantastic chance to own artwork from these successful emerging artists –  each very talented and collectible. Currently exhibiting in London and represented by Notting Hill based gallery Debut Contemporary, we have all successfully shown in other locations as well.

A few of the places the artists have exhibited: The Venice Biennale, Tate Britain, Tate ModernThe Southbank Centre, Sommerset House, and galleries in Singapore, LA, Russia, Salzburg, Austria, Germany and Poland. Collectors of their work are in many countries and include Banksy and Bill Woodrow. They have worked with clients such as Jerry Lewis and Groove Armada and have had work auctioned by high profile Christies auctioneer Hugh Edmeades


This is a wonderful way to get a piece of collectable contemporary art whilst supporting the artists in furthering their careers! Its not just a donation to us, it's also an art investment for you!

We are also offering exciting opportunities like commissioning your portrait for £150 or joining us at a Salon Dinner Party with London's top emerging artists. More info here: http://nicolaanthony.wordpress.com/2011/11/21/join-us-at-a-salon-dinner-party-with-the-artists/
