Volkswagen Group Australia is delighted to announce the launch of our first national charity partnership with Cancer Council, Australia's leading cancer charity.

Cancer Council is the only charity in Australia that covers every aspect of every cancer, from research to prevention and support services. Our partnership will help Cancer Council continue their life-saving work, moving towards their vision of a cancer free future.

To initiate the partnership, we are auctioning this unique 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI, with vinyl wrap designed by artist Jason Woodside. All proceeds will go directly to Cancer Council.

The Car

In May 2019, the iconic Golf GTI became the canvas for acclaimed artist Jason Woodside. The result is both breathtaking and totally unique. The classic design and spine-tingling performance of the Golf GTI, displayed like never before with vivid bands of colour and pattern.

Jason Woodside is a visual artist specializing in painting with acrylics and aerosols. Currently living in Southern California, Woodside began his career in New York City, attending the School of Visual Arts in the early 2000's.

His work is characterized by vivid colors and fades with contrasting bands of patterns and shapes. Taking inspiration from textiles, light and nature, Woodside plays with various bold textures and public exterior settings to generate visual cohesion and optimistic emotions.
