The morning of Monday, February 6 brought with it the news of a devastating earthquake hitting South Eastern Turkey and Northern Syria. More than 10 days after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake, people are still waiting to hear news about their loved ones, with a death toll now thought to be standing at around 45,000 people.
Though you might be far away from the scene of the disaster here in London, there are ways to help, however small they may seem. There are charities providing urgent relief to people affected by the earthquake, and this London-based art store is raising funds to donate to those in need.
Prints from artists that AMP represents will be available to buy in the sale running between February 9 – April 9.
Among the pieces are Poolside by Nico Froehlich, a 20×30 print of a beautiful depiction of reflection; London Fields by Joe Howard, showing off a sun-kissed tower block and prowling cat; and Untitled by Kell Mitchell, a plate of peaches coming face-to-face with a altered glass bottle of Coca Cola; among many others.
AMP’s Managing Director and co-founder, Alexandra Lutostanska says: “AMP ART STORE is a gallery space we have curated to sell prints that donate back to important causes that are close to our heart. We hope that in our small way we can help when emergency crisis’ happen.”
“AMP art store in its essence, is a space to spread love, share images, stories, and give a little back.”
