Breed – art auction for Ukrainian refugees
Choose Love for Ukrainian refugees
Like most people reading this, at Breed we’ve all been watching the news from Ukraine and wondering how we could help. We talked to our artists and together decided they would each donate a piece to be auctioned this week, with all proceeds going to Choose Love, an NGO which provides humanitarian aid to refugees. This is particularly pertinent to two of our artists, as Yelena Yemchuk is from Ukraine, living there until the age of 11, and Anna Bu Kliewer was born in Ukraine before being brought up in Germany.
The pieces up for auction are as follows:
A fine art giclée print of a sheet of transfer lettering, on her signature vintage graph paper. Each 8 x 8 inch print is signed and ready for framing.
