The first 100 people who arrive on the opening night will receive a prize.
Birmingham is brimming with beautiful and colourful masterpieces on numerous city walls and some of those works of art are down to well-known local artist, Foka Wolf. However, next month some lucky Brummies will get the chance to view some of the artist’s unseen works and installations together at an exhibit in Digbeth.
The Birmingham artist has become prolific for their Guerrilla art pieces that have popped up across the city. One of his most recent works, the Pat Butcher mural in Digbeth, has received much attention from both media and the public across the UK.
Taking place at The Old Crown pub, the event will begin with a special opening night, where visitors can enjoy live music from local artists Liamosino and The Transmission along with the opportunity to get up close and personal with some truly fantastic pieces of art. The Foka Wolf experience will conclude with a charity auction for Parkinson’s UK hosted by Tatvision, local YouTube personality, where businesses and individuals are encouraged to come forward and bid for an opportunity to take home art from this exclusive, unseen collection.

The first 50 people to arrive for the auction and opening night will also receive a complimentary special prize. Foka Wolf and The Old Crown pub will also be partnering with Parkinson’s UK for this event with proceeds from ticket sales and the auction being donated to the charity.
Speaking on the upcoming exhibition, Foka Wolf said: “Over the last year, people at the bottom have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. I feel like I have an opportunity and a duty to give something back and that is why I will be holding this auction. It will include various pieces from local artists, businesses and myself in this once in a lifetime event. There are limited seats available – with the first 100 people in on Wednesday receiving a special prize.”
The Foka Wolf Experience will be open from September 8 and close on September 12, running from 5PM to 11:30PM on both nights. Guests can purchase tickets to opening night here and tickets to the charity auction are available here.
