It’s CULTED with you 60-second ART BLAST.
Since the killing of George Floyd, artists from all over the world have used their art to support Black Lives Matter, acting as a force for change.
To start off, KAWS has released a new companion figure in the hopes of raising $250,000 in support of Black Lives Matter organisations.
Takashi Murakami has also announced plans to release 6 limited edition prints, for which all proceedings will go to organisations fighting social injustice.
LA artist Nikkolas Smith has created portraits of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, and scenes of violence, athletes and victims of police brutality are depicted in the artwork of Patrick Martinez, whose mission it is to memorialize the lost lives.
The proceeds of prints by artist Rannel Ngumuya, one of which features a fist gripping onto the American flag, are going directly to the fund for George Floyd’s six-year old daughter.
And Lauren Tsai’s print titled ‘Break From the System’, has raised nearly $100K, all of which will be donated towards the BLM movement.
We love to see artists using their talent to drive change.
