A PAINTING by graffiti artist Snik, which hangs on the walls of Henley’s former youth centre, is being sold.

The piece of artwork, which measures about 8ft by 8ft, has a reserve on it of £500 with all the proceeds going to the Thamesfield Youth Association.

The association, which owns the 0.6-acre youth centre site, is having a clear-out as it is selling the land to a care home company.

Elizabeth Hodgkin, a trustee of the association, said: “I’ve always called her the Blue Lady because I think she’s stunning. He’s such a well-known artist and he’s given us permission to sell it providing the money goes to the young people of Henley.”

It was installed about five years ago and Mrs Hodgkin added: “He actually painted it in the youth centre with the kids. His work sells for several thousands and I can see it in an office building.”



A ukulele signed and donated by musician Sam Brown and two full size pool tables are also for sale.

To view the picture of any of the other items call Mrs Hodgkin on (01491) 573192.
