"F%#k Cancer We Love Justin" is an art auction with a purpose. All of the proceeds will go directly to artist Justin Van Hoy and family, who for the second time in his young life is battling cancer. Our friends at Poketo Studios are holding the silent auction and participating artists are donating some of their finest pieces towards the cause (including Shepard Fairey's piece, pictured at right). Over 40 generous artists have joined forces to raise money for Justin and while word of the auction spreads, more artists are joining daily.

This auction will give hope to Justin's family and encourage him to keep on fighting his battle with Leukemia. Both as Swindle's Art Director and the man behind various works for artists and brands such as Roger Gastman, Obey, Cobra Snake and more, Justin's creative talent has entranced many. The event is open to all in support of Justin and to provide him with not just the funds, but the inspiration he needs to fight his cancer.

The event will be held at Poketo Studios, a hub for work of top international artists and founded by Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung, and complimentary food and drink will be provided.
