"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival". C.S.Lewis

Having recently decided to try to support myself from my art work, due to the COVID-19 pandemic I am faced with having two upcoming exhibitions postponed indefinitely. I realised that many artists will be in a similar boat. The pledge is an initiative whereby during this crisis artists make pieces available for under £200 (or equivalent currency) and we pledge to buy the work of another artist, also for under £200, once we reach £1000 of sales.
On top of this I also want to give 20% of sales to two altruistic projects. One is KARUNA, a charity that works in India and has recently launched a corona crisis appeal to help the poorest and most marginalised in Indian society in the face of the lockdown there. The other is SURYAVANA, a Buddhist retreat centre project here in Spain that faces financial disaster after having to cancel upcoming retreats. So I will give 10% of all sales to each.
At a time like this I hope we can support each other in many ways. At the moment one thing I can offer are my paintings and drawings, and in a way that will not only help support me, but support other artists and altruistic projects such as Karuna and Suryavana.
All pieces are unframed, and the price does not include package and postage. Please get in touch if you are interested in buying one, or indeed any of the other pieces on the site.
