Street Artist D*Face on Starting a Conversation to Save Lives

London | November 2018

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 44. In this short film, street artist D*Face discusses his own issues with isolation and loneliness and explains why he has joined forces with leading men’s health organisation, the Movember Foundation, to raise awareness about men’s mental health. D*Face and eight other famous faces from the street art world have created agenda-setting pieces aimed at opening conversations about mental health and suicide prevention. The bold works, including pieces by Shepard Fairey, Jonathan Yeo and Conor Harrington, will go on view at Sotheby’s London (16–20 November) ahead of our upcoming sale Contemporary Curated (20 November | London). Proceeds from the sale of these works will benefit Movember’s groundbreaking mental health programmes. Click here to watch more video.
