Introducing Nobilified's first annual prostate cancer awareness auction.
In the spirit of Movember, a month dedicated to spreading awareness of men’s heath, we at Nobilified have teamed up with two courageous friends currently on a cross-continental bike ride from London to Hong Kong to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
We will be auctioning off a collection of outrageous oil paintings of famous celebrities and athletes beginning December 5th and continuing through December 15th. Some of these ridiculous portraits include: Will Ferrell riding a water beast, Supreme Leader Rogen, King Lebron, Seth Rogen and James Franco as angel and devil, Count Luis Suarez, and a very unique portrait of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. The online bidding will be held on eBay, and all proceeds will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK.
When you think of nobility in the world of sports, you need not think much further than number 23. While we can't decide whether he is better than Jordan, he is deserving of the title. The unique portrait was originally meant to be send to Lebron to welcome his home to Cleveland. It was so magnificent that we kept it on our office walls. Now as Movember comes to an end and talk about prostate cancers seems to evaporate from the media, we have here to remind people that prostate cancer is more than just a growing a Movember beard.
This 80*100cm portrait of Lebron as Napoleon I in coronation robes originally painted by Anne-Louis Girodet de Roussy Trioson would make a lovely addition to any Lebron’s fan.
One of the largest events this past year was the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. While Germany’s complete annihilation of Brazils team at home and subsequent victory in the finals was memorable, perhaps what was even more so was Luis Suarez, the Uruguayan striker bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini . As Suarez has developed quite the reputation for biting, we though it was only fitting that he be dubbed Count Suarez.
This 60*80cm masterpiece will make an excellent gift for anyone who dislikes the striker whether he be a Liverpool or Man United fan.
Having studied the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea in University I was excited to learn about the upcoming movie staring Seth Rogen and James Franco on a quest to assassinate Kim Jong Un. Needless to say, I quickly figured that this plot aimed to install Seth Rogen as the legitimate leader of North Korea.
Inspired by traditional propaganda posters, This unique 70*90cm one of a kind masterpiece is a must for fan of his eternal greatness, Sacred Leader Rogen.
Perhaps the best painting we have on auction is this neoclassical masterpiece of Will Ferrell as Cupid riding a water beast. In his radiant bounty Mr. Ferrell glides effortlessly above the sea as his grabs his goatlike sea monster to his next destination.
This 80*100cm painting was completed in 1897 by William-Adolphe Bouguereau is sure to make an excellent gift for any die hard Will Ferrell fan. Remember, only one copy of these paintings will only be made. Help support prostate cancer and purchase a cool piece for the living room.
When one thinks of a bromance, one does not need to think much further than James Franco and Seth Rogen. Even off their on set duties, these two bro’s don’t mind getting naked with each other. The comfort and ease at which they did so in Naked and Afraid inspired this painting of Seth and James as the devil holding an angel.
This 80*100 will make the perfect decoration to any fan of Seth and James. This is a one in a time opportunity to acquire a true masterpiece. Give the perfect gift this Christmas and help support prostate cancer research.
Now it is never a great idea to name a painting after a hashtag, but in this case we felt we could make an exception. Anyone who visited the internet in November was subjected to Kim Kardashians attempt to break the internet using her “assets”. Through this portrait depicting Kanye stylishly wearing his red October shoes, dressed as Napoleon riding Kim his noble stead, we hope to raise some money for prostate cancer.
This 41*51cm masterpiece will make the perfect gift for anyone who wants to be able to say, "I have a painting of Kanye West riding Kim Kardashian on my wall." Help support two legends on an epic cross continental adventure from London to Hong Kong as well as prostate cancer research.
Chris Jensen, the founder of Nobilified, says, “This auction is about using unconventional methods to raise money for a noble cause, as well as supporting two friends who have embarked on the kind of journey that turns humans into legends—the trip will take them across 15 countries over nine months, with temperatures varying from +40°C in Turkey to -40°C along the Pamis Highway in mid-winter.” He adds, “Despite Movember generating support and educating the population, I find that there is still a lot to do for a cancer which is expected to be the most common of all by 2031. If a man lives enough, there is a pretty good chance that he will get prostate cancer. While it is rare to contract the disease before age 40, the incidence increases to 1 in 38 for ages 40 to 59, and 1 in 14 for ages 60 to 69. I should also add, that I cannot a beard, therefore raising money by growing an epic stache is simply not possible.
Upon our last communications, the duo had just arrived in Dushanbe after having crossed 1650km of windy Uzbek desert. Carrying only a satellite phone, they must now inch their way towards the Afghan border towards China in snow and extreme cold. Many of the passes they will cross are now closed. They have been advised to buy large knives in Dushanbe in case they encounter any wolves.
