Yinka Shonibare CBE launches new charity print The Help Portfolio
Yinka Shonibare CBE and fifteen other leading UK-based artists have each made a new limited edition print which they have generously contributed to 'The Help Portfolio', 2020. All profits from the sale of this boxed collection of prints will be donated to sixteen charities selected by the artists involved. These charities reflect a cause that the artists feel passionate about and include larger national bodies, as well as local organisations whose vital work in communities is often overlooked and underfunded.
The portfolio will be available from Thursday 5 November 2020 and can be purchased from Jealous Gallery and Print Studio, who have worked with each artist to publish their bespoke artwork. The portfolio is an edition of 125 and the launch price is £7,500.
