By purchasing 3D prints and artwork depicting motorsport legends you can help alleviate the suffering of the war-affected population
The world of historic international motoring is starting the engines up in the face of the humanitarian emergency triggered by the Russian attack thanks to a spontaneous initiative by the artists of the sector, who offer their works for sale in favor of the Ukrainian Red Cross. “Auto Artists for Ukraine”, this is the name of the special charity sale – whose proceeds are donated 100 percent – which has already raised 8k pounds in four days (about 9,670 euros). The idea came from the British sculptor Jonny Ambrose and the Reverend Adam Gompertz, an expert and enthusiast of historic vehicles. “We realize that our action can only have a minimal impact but we could not remain motionless in the face of the growing horror of these days“, they commented. “This is why we decided to help the Ukrainians by appealing to car lovers like us”.
Illustrators, photographers, painters: 50 artists have joined so far from different countries, donating works of all sizes and for all budgets. From the smallest and cheapest pieces to the most substantial purchases, even at auction. Many of the works on offer have been specially made. The organization identified for the donations is the Red Cross, which uses the same protocols everywhere and allows artists to pay in their own country, all united in the same cause. The sales take place via Instagram with the purchase of the works posted in the collective account. The collected amounts are paid directly by the authors to the headquarters of the Red Cross, then sending the screenshots of the transactions for monitoring the total collected. In addition to a shopping action, anyone who wishes can contribute to the collection simply by sharing the “Auto Artists for Ukraine” logo and the artists’ works through their Social accounts. The collection’s Instagram address is https://www.instagram.com/auto_artists_for_ukraine.
