This is a brilliant initiative instigated by Matthew Burrows and I’m very pleased to take part. Any of my artwork sold while the Artist Support Pledge is running will count towards the total – and to help further I’ve produced a special series of six works that are available at a lower price.
So it’s even easier to buy original art and help artists.
There’s a lot more info on Matthew’s Website, but in essence he explains the idea as;
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support and gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress I have instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge
The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work, on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 of sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artist/s work.
To make a pledge, post your work with the #artistsupportpledge and follow the # to see everyone else’s work. Keep updated on new opportunities and announcements @artistsupportpledge Repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors. Let generosity be infectious. #supportartists #covid19 #coronavirus #livegenerously
For my part, as well as committing to spend £200 on other artists work for every £1000 of sales, I have produced the ASP Series you see above. Very much along the lines of my main Pointed series but with a single specific design and three colour palette.
Sales of any of my art will count towards the total, not just the ASP series, and as with all my artworks the print includes a white border, as you see in the photos, and is ready to frame.
The ASP prints are available in two sizes; 14” x 11” and 24” x 20” both with a £5 saving on my normal price. Limited Edition prints come signed and with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Even if you don’t see anything you like among my designs, please take a look at what’s available for sale on Instagram under the #artistsupportpledge hash-tag and consider supporting artists during these troubled times.
