FBi‘s Brush With Fame
The return of the doodles…
We’re bringing back Brush With Fame: FBi’s fundraiser art auction of musician-made masterpieces!
Incredible musicians and artists come through this station every week. We’ve been asking some of our favourites to decorate a plain white canvas using fabric markers, creating a totally unique piece of art. These works have been kindly donated to help raise funds for FBi as an independent, not-for-profit station.
This year’s auction includes art from international heavyweights Mac Demarco, Grimes, Hot Chip, Killer Mike & El-P (Run The Jewels), Parquet Courts, Neneh Cherry & more.
On the local front, some of Australia’s best rising musicians feature in the auction: Alison Wonderland, Cosmo’s Midnight, Peter Bibby, The Rubens and Total Giovanni. There’s even a lock of Dune Rats hair up for grabs with the Brisbane band’s artwork, as cut off by Courtney Barnett during the FBi x Laneway Festival radio takeover last year. (An optional addition – the canvas can also be purchased hair-free!)
