Stik auctions full set of Sleeping Baby Prints at Christies to raise money for NHS

A full set of STIK’s ‘Sleeping Baby’ print, artist’s proofs in all four colour-ways are going to be auctioned at Christie Auction house on the 19th May 2016. The full set have been donated by big hearted STIK in aid of the Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Art Charitable Fund adding to the £50,000 already raised by this iconic piece.

Stik’s ‘Sleeping Baby’ was painted at East London’s Homerton Hospital by stik to thank them for all their help when he was brought in as a patient.

Stik then decided to print a sleeping baby limited edition print at London’s Homerton Hospital raising an impressive £50,000 for the NHS. Read more here.

The image has since been adopted as the mascot of the hospital’s junior doctors strike. Read more here.

With NHS (National Health Service) cuts across the country and the private sector being allowed to undercut the NHS services, his mural sleeping baby, now shows the Hospital as a vulnerable baby. The sleeping baby artwork shows vulnerability, and Stik relates this to the National Health Service at the moment.

“We have been left holding the baby and we are going to protect it” Stik

The prints go under the hammer on 19th May 2016 at Christies Prints and Multiples. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of social history in the making whilst supporting our NHS. Find the link here.


A massive shout out to STIK who once again uses his art as a gain for others in need. We love this guy.
