Hello everybody, we are pleased to announce that we are holding an art auction to benefit the victims of human trafficking. If you are an artist who would like to join us in this cause by donating a piece then please contact us here. If you are an art lover then please come to the art auction and add some great art to your collection.

The proceeds from this auction will go to ZOE and She Dances, two organizations that are dedicated to eradicating human trafficking and providing after-care to victims that have been rescued. Human trafficking is a modern day form of slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. It is an under-reported cause to which there is a great need for general awareness. Human trafficking is now the third largest criminal industry in the world.

With this art auction, we are hoping to raise awareness and funds to fight trafficking. Our goal is to raise 5,000 dollars for these two organizations.

Nate Fish

Nate Fish is originally from Cleveland, Ohio. He is a trained writer, a self-taught artist and disc jockey, and the greatest baseball coach on planet Earth. Fish has written many unpublished stories, essays, poems, and even entire unpublished books. Fish started making visual art five years ago at the age of 25. An unlikely candidate for artist after spending his entire life to that point playing baseball, Fish began slowly, like a cave-man, painting words and stick figures on small canvas board. In 2006, Fish took his work to the streets, creating the art brand, The Brick of Gold, while his work on canvas and paper continued to expand to include what you see here. Fish only eats spaghetti and eggs high in the fake mineral photonamite making his blood hard like car paint and preventing hangovers. Fish Currently lives in Brooklyn and manages the Yorkville Baseball Academy in Harlem, NY. You can see his work here. (The art below is not what will be shown at the auction.)
