In October 2022 Wonderstuff organised ART X SPORT to celebrate the Rugby League World Cup and raise funds for Newcastle Rugby Foundation.
Each Steeden rugby ball was brought to life by an artist through their own style to create a vibrant set of artworks. These were then auctioned online.
Celebrating the Rugby League World Cup
A Collaborative Art Project to raise funds to support Newcastle Rugby Foundation
Paul Alderson, founder of Wonderstuff, created a Wonderstuff’s second art event to bring together artists and support a local charity. ART X SPORT featured some of the North Easts, and UK’s, most exciting artists.
The event was sponsored and supported by businesses including, WoeMan, Steeden, and The Biscuit Factory.
Our incredible artists have all given their time and talent to support this project. We’re always overwhelmed by the support our artists give to our projects, and to helping others.
Take a look at each artist, follow them, and bid for your favourite ball. All for a good cause.
