Life is hard for the free-thinking and independent musicians these days. Revenue is still largely concentrated in the hands of music's 1% — so for many artists and platforms, it's get creative or die.

One such outlet, FBi Radio — an Australian independent, non-for-profit radio station dedicated to supporting local artists — is doing just that. On Thursday, they released a new batch of art from some of indie music's finest to support its annual "Brush with Fame" fundraising drive.

Grimes, Run the Jewels, Alabama Shakes, Mac DeMarco, TV on the Radio, Thundercat and Vic Mensa have all contributed their own artwork, which is currently be auctioned off to the highest bidder on eBay.

It seems there is a reason Run the Jewels raps rather than paints — but still their canvases, and all those offered, have their charm. Check some of the choice pieces below; you can bid on these and other artists' contributions here.
