"Unwanted Body Hair" is a Winner!
On Saturday night a winner was chosen for the Diversity Role Models competition at The Chocolate Factory in Wood Green, in which visitors to Graeme Messer’s art exhibition were invited to suggest a title for one of his works. The winning title was suggested by Peter Sanders, who came up with a witty title - “Unwanted body hair”.

Other titles that caught the judges imagination included: Manhood, Mandusa, Headf**k, Putin Perm, He’s Always On My Mind, Bare Spray, All Dolled Up and I Want To Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair.

Peter Sanders won a framed Limited Edition Giclee print of the work he named and the funds raised by the competition are all going to Diversity Role Models - a charity that tackles homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bulling in UK schools.

The Chocolate Factories in Wood Green, London N22, are a landmark development and hub of excellence for the creative industries in the UK.

The project started in 1996 when Collage Arts, an arts development agency, moved into the Chocolate Factory on Clarendon Road and converted several derelict floors of the Factory into artist studios.

What followed was a high demand for creative space and in 2002, Collage Arts renovated Chocolate Factory 2 on Coburg Road, next door.
