Northern Quarter based tattoo art brand Stag & Raven have created a Limited Edition Art Print to raise Money for the #westandtogether campaign.
The guys specialise in Limited Edition prints by tattoo artists and have pledged all profits to the victims of the attack, with all profits going to the #westandtogether campaign fund.
Hannah Cox, who co-runs the third floor Afflecks shop with business partner Kate Matusiak, says:
‘We wanted to create something that symbolised the strength of Manchester and the love we have for this city.
“Our Resident Artist Jon Turner offered to create an exclusive design and we are happy to be able to do something to help.
‘”After the devastating attack we knew we wanted to do something to help, and creating a piece of art which reflects the resilience of the City seemed apt.
‘One of our Artists, Sarah March, has already donated 10 of her Beetopia Prints to the cause, which have sold already, raising over £200 and we hope that we can increase this donation with the sales of Jon’s Prints.
The retailer is also selling the £15 prints via their online store. The print is from an original pen and ink drawing by Resident Artist Jon Turner for Stag & Raven, featuring a line from the Tony Walsh poem ‘This is the Place.’
Tony Walsh visited the Store and also signed a copy, which is being auctioned off as part of the Art Battle Manchester Charity Art Auction.
The Art Community of Manchester has rallied together to raise funds, with Tattoo Artists of Manchester tattooing Manchester Bees for £50 with all profits going to the fund and Art Battle Manchester are holding a Charity Art Auction. Artists from Manchester and beyond have donated original artwork to raise money for the #westandtogether Manchester fund.
