UK artists create truly socially-distanced piece of artwork
Ken Bromley bring together 12 artists to create a socially-distanced artwork
At a time when everyone is feeling more disconnected and isolated than ever due to COVID-19, Ken Bromley wanted to create something to unite the country and connect communities together.
So they have been working on a truly socially distanced, UK-wide community art project that has brought together 12 artists from up and down the country (one artist from each region of the UK) to create one collaborative piece of artwork.
The project was done in conjunction with the annual ‘Inktober’ event and is based on the theme of ‘connection’. The aim was to enable artists from different areas of the UK to connect through the medium of art, showcasing their own individual styles whilst collaborating to create one beautiful piece of art as a community.
A blank piece of A2 paper was posted around the UK, from artist to artist, region to region, with each individual artist having only a matter of days to add their contribution to the page before it was posted onto the next artist.
The artists were only allowed to use black pen and ink and were asked to connect their contributions to one another’s, in whatever way they felt they could.
The finished piece is being auctioned to raise money for the Co-op Foundation, who help fund community projects across the UK. Click here to take part in this fund-raising event.
