Spot the Dot is a foundation using urban art to raise awareness of melanoma and other types of skin cancer which is in the top 3 of most common cancer types amongst young people and most of them are not aware of that! Research showed that people in the younger age categories check their skin least of all, while early detection can be crucial. This was the main motivation for Spot the Dot to ask people to rebel against the ignorance about skin cancer. REBELS AGAINST SKIN CANCER IN VIENNA 2017
During the worldwide Melanoma Awareness Month in May, we painted the world´s biggest mural dedicated to skincancer awareness (60 meter long) and 20 artists made an artwork inspired by the campaign title which was shown in a group exhibition at Improper Walls Gallery. All remaining art works available that will be sold will go to the Spot the Dot foundation and will be used to raise skincancer awareness. The Campaign was supported by MONTANA-CANS.
ARTISTS JOINING THE EXHIBITION:
Michael Hacker, Peter Phobia , Martyn Mills, Chris Versteeg, Emanuel Jesse, Death and Loori, Bernhard Kettner, Nita, Katharina Löffelmann, Mariella Lehner, Flö Rastbichler, Barbara Moura, Rob Perez , Gitty Scholz, Heidi Milka, Maria Viola, Marnie Higgs, Michael Pasterk, David Sciarone and I Met Lucy
ABOUT SPOT THE DOT
the organisation works with artists from all over the world who make exclusive “art against skin cancer” and donate it to the cause. Their art is available here and 100% of the profit goes to our foundation. By buying a nice piece of art people enable the foundation to organise more awareness campaigns worldwide and perhaps by having one of these beautiful art prints in people’s home or using it as gift, people have a conversation starter to encourage others to do self-exams for early detection of skin cancer.
