Eighties icon to raffle his out of this world art

Former frontman with Sigue Sigue Spuitnik, Martin Degville, has generously submitted a spectacular piece of his original art to be raffled at the forthcoming Front Row ‘Out of This World’ fashion extravaganza with all proceeds going to charity.

Martin’s striking, atmospheric painting currently on display at SEED, Robertson Street, Hastings, has taken the eighties icon many months to complete and Martin says he hopes it will raise a lot of cash for Front Row’s chosen charities.

“I’ve been working on this painting for quite a while,” he said.

“The inspiration for it came from the fall of Lucifer - there was a war between the good and the dark light.

“I decided to put it in Front Row and raffle it to raise money for the Terrance Higgins Trust and St Michael’s Hospice.”

Martin says he’s looking forward to presenting the painting to the winner and also to being part of The spectacular Front Row 2015, which takes place over two days next month (November 21-22) at the De La Warr Pavilion.

“There will be a collection of Sputnik2 designs on the catwalk and I’ll be performing a short set,” he said.

“It’s going to be a fabulous evening..it’s going to be fantastic!”

Raffle tickets for the painting cost £5 each and are available online via the Front Row website: www.thisisfrontrow.co.uk
