UPaint auction raises €31,000 for FPA2 and Monaco SPA animal shelter

The public auction of a dozen artworks created by some of the world’s leading street artists during the recent UPaint event in Larvotto has raised an impressive €31,000. The funds have been donated in full to the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (FPA2) and the Monaco Society for the Protection of Animals (SPA).  

Earlier this month, UPaint Monaco invited a dozen well-established urban and graffiti artists to the Principality for the eighth edition of the colourful and thought-provoking event on the Promenade du Larvotto.  

Among those who showcased their talents were Chanoir, Cofee and Mathieu_1976 from France as well as El Xupet Negre from Spain, Juanjo Surace from Argentina, Nina Valkhoff from the Netherlands, Piskv from Italy and Monaco’s Mr. One Teas. Many joined Prince Albert II in celebrating the success of the auction that concluded the event on 10th June. 

The Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo managed the sales, which ultimately raised €31,000 and featured a dozen artworks produced over the course of UPaint on the themes of regeneration and pets.

The proceeds have been donated to the FPA2 and the Monaco SPA via a charity cheque. The Monaco SPA will use its portion of the funds to continue its efforts to build shelters for the animals in need of refuge in the area.
