System of a Down's Serj Tankian Donates Art For Christchurch Victims


From Newshub

A special piece of art by Serj Tankian is being auctioned off to help raise money for the Christchurch terror attack victims.

The System of a Down frontman painted the large acrylic on wood work while in New Zealand and shortly before the events in Christchurch.

Titled 'NZ', he's donated it to help the You Are Us/Aroha Nui charity, and it's now available on Trade Me.

It's described as a "vibrant and joyful work" and measures 1200 x 1070 x 18mm. The painting has a buy now of $10,000, and the current bid sits at $3030. The auction closes on Monday, April 22 at 4:23pm.

"We would like to thank the concert organisers in both Auckland and Christchurch for making the events happen, for Trade Me in agreeing to waive any fees with this auction and for Serj for his kind donation," the auction reads.

"The winner of the auction can either collect the work from Auckland or delivery can be arranged at cost to the buyer."

And the lucky buyer may also get the opportunity to meet Tankian himself.

"If you are in NZ though - not LA - we can arrange that for when Serj returns here much later in the year. Would be happy to do so for you," the auction says.
