Wonderful campaign from Cologne veteran King Size Dick (78)! For a good cause, he is auctioning a work of art, a real one-of-a-kind from Cologne: the oil painting was based on a record cover by Bläck Fööss.
Cologne. A guy like a tree, but his heart is much bigger. “I have to do something good in these times. So I thought about what I was going to do, ”says veteran singer King Size Dick in an interview with EXPRESS.de. Fööss and art lovers, above all, will probably listen carefully.
Because King Size Dick had an idea: There is a painting by Charly Pirot in his house. The painter, who died in 2015, was known as “the kölsche van Gogh” and in 1985 he resorted to brushes and paint for the Bläck Fööss. He copied the cover of the album “Em richtije Veedel …”. On it you can see: The Fööss with King Size Dick at the baptismal font in a church.
“This picture only exists once. I’m going to auction that now. Because I want to do something for Pänz, ”said Dick. His goal: He would like to raise as large a sum as possible for the “Cologne Clinic Clowns” and thus make children and other people happy.
The association has existed since 1995 and has made it its task to honor the small and large patients in medical institutions in To put a smile on Cologne’s face.
This is how the Dick auction is supposed to work: “I have estimated a starting bid of 1,111 euros. The painting should be much more valuable, ”estimates the singer. The auction should run until his birthday on December 29, 2021 (submission deadline 12 p.m.). “Anyone who wants to bid can send me an email. The highest bid is then accepted. “The email address is: [email protected]
