ART 4 AFRICA ONLINE 2019

A fundraising collaboration between artists, art lovers and Temwa

1st – 30th June

#Art4Africa19 // @TemwaUK

The art work is here! Please enjoy browsing the amazing work on offer and know that every purchase you make supports Temwa’s work in Malawi. Do also visit the artists’ websites to see more of their work and creative ventures!

A big thank you to all of the generous artists who have donated. And thank you, art lovers, for your support. Together we are helping to empower people in remote African communities to tackle the root causes of poverty and transform their own futures.

Scroll down for Art and read the T&Cs below before you purchase.

How it works

In contrast to Temwa’s annual live Art 4 Africa auctions, this year Art 4 Africa has shape shifted into an online art sale (with only a hint of an auction element).

Rather than one event for a whole month, we will be selling art that makes a difference, giving you the power to buy art whenever you like from wherever you are.

Art 4 Africa Online 2019 is predominantly an art sale: simply choose your artwork and make your purchase!

However, if you would like to make an offer that is less than the allocated value, you can offer a silent bid. To do this:

– email [email protected] with ‘A4A offer’ in the subject
– In the email include the name of the artist, the title of the artwork and your offer amount
– If, by the end of June, the piece has not sold and your offer is the highest received, and the artist is happy to offer the artwork at your offer price, we will be in touch to arrange the sale with you.
– Please note that some of the artworks are not available for silent bids; this will be included in the artwork info.

Think of it a little like Ebay… with a ‘buy now’ option or crossing your fingers and sending a silent bid.

Each artwork has info below the image, including title, price, what percentage of the proceeds will be donated to Temwa, measurements, materials, whether the piece is framed and how to make your purchase. Most artworks are being sold by us, but some are being sold through the artist’s own store.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us by emailing [email protected] or calling the Temwa office on 0117 287 2892

If you’d like to help even more, you can share a social post about the art work you purchase, using the hashtag #MyArt4Africa and tagging Temwa using @TemwaUK.

*Important things to note*

  • The Temwa team are in the office from Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm. Responses to emails, phone calls and online purchases will be made within these times only, so please be patient for your reply.
  • The artwork is on sale between 1st – 30th June 2019 only.
  • On purchasing artwork we will be in touch to arrange collection or delivery – see below:
  • Collections: if you choose to collect your artwork from the Temwa office, all artwork must be collected by Friday 26th July. After this date a holding fee of £5 per week will be charged (we have a very tiny office, so are unable to store artwork).
  • Delivery / Postage: Art buyers will need to cover postage / delivery costs for each artwork purchased. The team will be in touch to let you know how much this will cost and how to arrange payment, before the artwork is sent to you.
  • While we try to be as accurate as possible, the colours as seen on screen are not necessarily a true reflection of the actual item. The website may also blur or distort the quality of some images.  If you would like to request more information please get in touch.
  • Any views represented in the artwork belong to the artists only.

ADAM DICKENS

Adam is a British photographer and designer based in St Albans, working in the UK, East Africa and Asia. Over the last seven years, Adam has photographed and filmed for 12 charities including Temwa in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Rwanda, Zambia, Ghana, India and Sri Lanka, as well as the UK. His trips have been mostly self-funded, but in the last three years he has raised nearly £40,000 through successful crowdfunding campaigns to continue his development photography work. These trips provide small charities working in Africa and Asia with thousands of images and video content that transform the way they get attention, raise awareness and increase their funding. They also give opportunities to other photographers, writers and filmmakers based in the UK, Africa and Asia to accompany Adam on these trips so even more inspiring stories can be told and more lives changed.

EMILY BARTLETT

Emily Bartlett grew up on a dairy farm in rural Dorset, South West England. At only 18, Emily achieved a triple distinction in her BTEC National Diploma in Art and Design. The same year saw her relocate to the vibrant city of Genoa, Italy, where she taught English whilst drawing inspiration for her art from her vivid, colourful Italian surroundings. To this day, Emily’s art portfolio is influenced by the bustling, bright  Mediterranean cityscape that provided the backdrop to her life during her late teens and early twenties. After six years in Italy, Emily returned to Dorset in early 2015 to continue painting recreationally, as well as in her professional life, leading art sessions with special educational needs adults. Since August, Emily has lived in Liverpool, where she has her own art studio. Her forte is large scale, experimental and expressive artwork, whilst recently she has been exploring the mediums of ceramics and woodwork. Many of Emily’s art works are currently held on display in Italy, however her most recent pieces are on location in Liverpool.

*Postage* Emily and her art work is based in Liverpool and so each artwork will require postage to reach you (unless you are also based in Liverpool, in which case collection may be possible).

Silent bids are not available for Emily’s work.

GILES BARWICK

Giles is a Bristol (UK) based fine artist. He first studied Graphic Design, and following a short course at St Ives School of Art he applied to the University of West of England (UWE) to study Fine Art. It was here he was awarded the “Innes Wilken Art in Architecture” prize. Since gaining his BA, Giles has continued to develop his innovative techniques and shrewd use of colours within his work.

He currently produces 2D abstract work. His art is a means of self-expression and therapy, yet the resulting angst-ridden canvases are bright and lively in nature. The techniques are varied and now adopt an illustrative style in favour of the linear markings of his earlier works. The rough brush strokes, dribbles and smears are achieved with the use of acrylics, pens and spray cans.

JOHN D’OH

“Chances are if you’ve visited Bristol, you’ve already seen my work. Most of my work is created from media influence and recycled materials. I get inspiration from my love of film, anime, comics, the legends of urban art and add some of my quirky John D’oh humour to it!!

I’d like to think that I have my own style, as an artist I pride myself on my own originality, my own unique style that, like marmite, you’ll love or hate it! I am continuing to grow as an Artist but am starting to get known outside of my native Bristol as my work travels the globe and attracts media attention.

I have specialised in the 3D art movement for a while and in 2013 I was lucky enough to have two 3D installations in the Upfest Urban art festival in Bristol, which I think was the first of its kind in its History, and one in ‘Paint the Town’ in Weston-Super-Mare.”

Kimberley Thomas is an illustrative artist living and working in Ibiza and London. For 15 Years, she worked for all the top names in Ibiza as a graphic designer and illustrator, as well as owning The Bedroom – the only sex shop designed for women in Ibiza. Kimberly co-founded Let’s Go Crazy, London’s infamous rave. All of this was brought to a halt when a battle with cancer put exhibiting her work on her bucket list. Her first solo show at Ibiza’s exclusive Atzaro was such a resounding success that she decided to survive the cancer. With co-curator Danny Rose, she created the bi-annual Collective Show.

The Collective soon became an event not to be missed at The London West Bank Gallery and was featured on BBC. Kimberley Thomas’s work has a strong narrative and often sprinkled with a pinch of humour, this combined with her strong graphic style has become has built her a large group of collectors. Her work is a mix of traditional pen and ink, markers, and digital skills. Kimberly also exhibits at the Urban in Ibiza summer exhibition.

LOKEY

Lokey was born and raised in Bristol. His passion for Graffiti started in the mid 1980’s through a chance meeting in a local park, with some kid’s break-dancing who had returned from their holiday in America with hip-hop mix tapes and photographs of Graffiti. They told him he had to have a street name, a tag, and from that point on he was hooked and after playing about with a few other tag’s he became Lokey. He is the youngest veteran of the Bristol Graffiti Phenomenon, with over 20 years of experience in the once underground scene, which is now very much a part of the day to day lives of Bristolian people. His writing style has progressed, over the years, from simple Bubble letters in the early days, through to Wildstyle and now the 3D lettering, that he is most known for.

MINTO

Minto began life in Edinburgh before moving to central Bristol during the early 80’s and started painting in the late eighties. His artistic influences come from the early pioneers of global graffiti, Anime, Retro Synthwave and abstracted artforms. ‘MINTO’ has developed a personal painting style combining elements of abstract and impressionist theory with freestyle graffiti, that employs imagination and instinct without the use of preliminary sketches. “To freestyle is to learn at speed and not to worry about over or underworking a piece,” he says. “I instinctively make marks of varying speed well into the piece, leading to a more considered, deliberate approach towards the end. Understanding the relationship between neighbouring tones and exploiting the frequent accidents that occur help me to steer the piece. “People often come up with many different interpretations of my work when they examine it – and I hope each piece inspires playful, energetic discussion between them all. Enjoyment of the intrigue that this style offers, I think, is the key to its longevity.”

ORRIBLE

0rrible is an artist based in the rolling countryside of Devon. Orrible has been making his mark since an early age growing up in Plymouth, exploring areas of urban decay whilst being heavily immersed in the skateboarding and drum n bass counter-culture of the late nineties into the 21st century – all heavy influences on his work today. Living and working just outside Salcombe, it is here where he feels most at home and how his signature style of stencil art has emerged. 0rrible has a deep-rooted love for nature and animals and this is portrayed beautifully throughout his collection of works, which can be in the form of a street paste up, canvas, or studio screen print. Operating from a 500-year-old farmhouse in his pigsty studio with nesting owls, swallows and bats overhead, he bases his art on his local natural surroundings but with the element and execution of street art and graffiti of the city, a far cry from the busy sprawling streets of London or Amsterdam where his street art can be found. 0rrible is currently showcasing his work with Jealous Gallery in Shoreditch, London and Rise Gallery in Croydon, London, as well as The Drang Gallery in Salcombe, Devon.

SCOT BURGOYNE – PRSC

Since 2007, the Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft – PRSC – has worked to promote civil liberty with a particular focus on public space. Sweeping, painting and speaking out are part of their resistance to zealous regulation of independent initiative. Their lead has encouraged others to do the same and, as a result, Stokes Croft has become a hub of confident and creative dissent.

Working to finance the activities of PRSC, Stokes Croft China decorates English fine bone china using original transfers salvaged from Staffordshire’s decimated ceramic industry.  Our small team of local artists apply these beautiful original lithographs by hand, combining them with modern print with a social or political message. These highly collectable pieces of ware are unique, often very funny and a powerful tool for social change.

Silent bids are not available for these pieces.
