Bentley is staging an art auction together with Bonhams in order to raise money for The Christie, a cancer hospital in Manchester, England. The pieces to be sold have been created by the men and women of the Bentley styling and design team, which have pooled their creative talents to making art.

The art will be auctioned at an invitation-only evening event on Tuesday December 1 at Bonhams, the auction house in London.

The collection includes a vast array of sculptures, painting, digital art and photography. Created in many different media, from sculptures in bronze and set in wood, to metal and leather, to plastic, to palette knife and brush paintings on canvas, the works showcase the imagination of the men and women who design Bentley cars.

A total of 22 designers have been involved in the project, including digital designers and clay modellers.

Entrance to the auction is strictly by invitation only, but from Wednesday November 4 all of the artworks will be viewable via the Bentley website www.bentleydesignpassion.com.
