Rekindle

I'm very honoured that my All-Ways New York egg sculpture has been selected to promote The Faberge Big Egg Hunt, which is taking place in New York over Easter. The exhibition features over 250 egg sculptures by leading artists including Jeff Koons, Julian Schnabel and Tracey Emin. The eggs will be hidden throughout the city before being auctioned to raise funds for Elephant Family and Studio in a School.

Constructed from 52 New York street signs, All-Ways New York pays homage to the many varied streets and locations that underpin the diversity of this inspiring city. My egg will also feature on T-shirts and other Big Egg Hunt products, which will be on sale for a limited time through Saks Fifth Avenue and online. The proceeds from these sales will also go to the two charities involved. For more information please visit www.TheBigEggHunt.org

Big Egg Hunt

Thanks to the superb efforts of the London Police, the BBC, ITV and the social media platforms who built such a widespread campaign appealing for his safe return, Egg Letter Box was found just yards away from his plinth and was able to re join the exhibition - behind a secure display case!

Egg Letter Box was auctioned by Sotheby's, selling for a cracking £42,000. As one of the highest selling eggs alongside Prince Charles' signed egg and Zaha Hadid's egg, the Big Egg Hunt has raised over £1 million for Elephant Family and Action for Children.
