Foka Wolf takeover at The Old Crown

Everyone’s favourite Birmingham based Guerrilla artist Foka Wolf brings unseen works and installations together at a one of a kind exhibition at The Old Crown opening on 8th September 2021 running through to 12th September 2021.

The event begins with a special opening night, where visitors can enjoy live music from local artists Liamosino and The Transmission along with the opportunity to get up close and personal with some truly fantastic pieces of art.

The Foka Wolf experience will conclude with a charity auction hosted by Tat Vision, local YouTube personality, where businesses and individuals are encouraged to come forward and bid for an opportunity to take home art from this exclusive, unseen collection. The first 50 people to arrive for the auction and opening night will also receive a special gift.

Foka Wolf and The Old Crown will be partnering with Parkinson’s UK for this event with proceeds from ticket sales and the auction being donated to the charity.

Speaking on the upcoming exhibition, Foka Wolf said;

Over the last year, people at the bottom have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. I feel like I have an opportunity and a duty to give something back and that is why I will be holding this auction. It will include various pieces from local artists, businesses and myself in this once in a lifetime event.”
