Some of you may have seen my Southsea Hug wall painted in Albert road recently. On painting it I had the opportunity to 'chat' to quite a lot of people wandering up and down the street. Many of which who seemed either vulnerable, homeless or both. And this gave me an idea.
I have produced a high quality limited edition giclee print. It's an easily frameable A3 in size, an edition of 45, all signed, stamped and numbered for sale for £50 each.
All the profits of the sale of this print will be donated to the society of St James homeless charity and the Tonic charity, both very worthy local charities helping vulnerable people.
Tonic is A charity that raises awareness and challenges the stigma often associated with mental illness through music and arts based activities in association with an array or established and local artists.
Society of St James is a Hampshire-based homelessness charity, providing accommodation and support to over 2500 people each year.
The print will only be available to purchase in person from Saturday 16th April (this Saturday) via @playdeadstudio in highland road; @strongislanduk in Albert road; @homecoffeesouthsea in Albert road; @southseacoffee in Osborne road and my studio (above the Wedgewood rooms in Albert road).
If you can help by sharing this post and getting the prints sold I'd be grateful. #print #southsea#southseahug #southseaghetto #art #charity#portsmouth #portsmouthartist
What do you meanwe were singing history It could have been Vikings, Vizigoths or Victorians - the 1936 Olympics were ancient history. But apparently it wasn't so long ago after all.
It doesn't rhyme
Nether did Jesse Owen
And he won four gold medals
In the 1936 Olympics
