Buy some art, help fund Burning Candy's exploration into graff culture

Once frowned upon by most of the free world outside of the taggers themselves, graffiti long ago grew into its own respected art form. While previously jailed and widely persecuted, some erstwhile underground artists are now collecting millions from their art. Burning Candy, a group of world-renowned artists in their own right, are working to create the documentary DOTS to cover the depths of graffiti art, shining a light to appreciate the beauty found within the scene. The London-based crew is one of the only male and female co-ed graffiti artist groups, known mostly for the  impact full murals they do as a collective. Deciding to take their passion from the walls to the screen, Burning Candy traveled across the globe, dedicating a section of the film to each artist who collaborated on the film. Filmmaker The Baron flew to different destinations around the globe to see in person the pieces that have most influenced them, and to meet with the people responsible. For example Burning Candy member Monkey will travel to Brazil to meet with the people behind the Pixacao movement, who have taken murals and graffiti to almost impossible heights and locations. Australia, New York and Russia are a few other destinations marked on their map. To help out this project financially, the Burning Candy crew will be allowing their followers to be part of the production, as every great art piece needs some funding. In order to raise money, you can purchase an array original artwork from Burning Candy artists, depending on what you would be able to contribute. A limited edition box set, with only 150 available, with original artwork from 9 core members is the highest of the contributions. By purchasing the box set you will also receive a loan from the film, meaning you would receive cash back  if and when the film is a financial success (good luck on that one, tho). But if you don’t have £500 lying around, no need to panic — smaller contributions are also available. You can purchase a piece of original artwork from one of the individual artists, and the money will go towards that particular member’s journey. And of course t-shirts are always available with the DOTS logo. Every penny counts. If you decide to contribute with any of the above choices, you’ll be able to view your name on the rolling credits at the end of the film. Hooray for your 2 seconds of fame! So lend a helping hand to these artists and film makers and get a chance to be a part of the bigger picture.
