FX GROUP IS PROUD TO HOST THE OFFICIAL GRAMMY PROGRAM BOOK AFTER PARTY, AND THE LAUNCH OF THE ARTIST GATSBY’s NEW COLLECTION ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 28TH, TO BENEFIT THE CHARITY, HOPE FOR JUSTICE.
FX GROUP, publisher of the OFFICIAL GRAMMY PROGRAM BOOK and media partners to the Academy, has joined forces with the artist GATSBY and the charity HOPE FOR JUSTICE to together raise money and awareness to stop human slavery and trafficking.
Hope for Justice exists to bring an end to modern slavery by rescuing victims, restoring lives, and reforming society. Hope for Justice is an international non-profit organization whose effective and proven anti-trafficking model operates in the US and across four continents.
Ed Lemieux, Hope for Justice’s Executive Director, Strategic Partnerships, said: “Say ‘slavery’ and most people still think of it as something from the past, but in fact there are more people trapped in modern slavery today than at any point in human history. We at Hope for Justice are determined to end this evil crime, which profits from human misery and takes people’s freedom in degrading and often barbaric ways. We would like to thank FX GROUP and GATSBY for their support, partnership and generosity – it’s going to make an incredible difference on the frontlines, helping victims of human trafficking.”

THE ARTIST GATSBY
FX would like to thank GATSBY for his generosity and support of this very important cause. We are thrilled we were able to procure and curate this limited and rare collection. He does not have people who buy his art – he has people who obsessively collect his art. GATSBY has many US and international fans of his work as he is considered:
“One of the most prolific and exciting artists with a slant towards Banksy and Thierry Gutta – while making clear his point of view on current events and social issues”
“GATSBY is this generation’s mirror to materialism, desire, drive and shame…it’s intoxicating”
“The multiple layers and meanings behind each work of art will hypnotize one for days..never quite sure if you have mastered the meaning of each mesmerizing piece”
In his own words:
“I am a real fake artist that thinks art is more about ideas than images. My intent is to create illusions that tallow us to escape together to a beautiful and decadent place where anything is possible, even if it’s only for a moment…”
