Healing Art Appeal To Support The NHS

In these unprecedented times the art community, like every other, has suffered enormous disruption and uncertainty. Finding a balance between compassion for the most vulnerable in society and facing the pressures of maintaining our businesses is not easy.

In seeking to address both pressures we have formed a partnership with the Maudsley Trust who are running an emergency fundraising campaign for the NHS. By offering a substantial discount of between 10-30% off selected works, we are asking our clients to donate 10% of the final saving to the NHS.

Why Maudsley Charity NHS Mental Health Appeal?

There are many fundraising initiatives operating at the moment around COVID-19. The mental health impact surrounding COVID-19 is already growing into a national crisis. Whether it is single parents struggling to home-school whilst paying the bills, business owners facing bankruptcy, or family members suffering the loss of loved ones in isolation, this crisis will be played out in a myriad of ways.

Love Hurts

Healing Art Appeal

Banksy

Love Hurts

2012

Screen print,

Artist Proof from edition of 16,

released only to VIP friends of the artist,

68 x 70 cm, includes Pest Control COA

Love Hurts is a highly coveted artist proof print that was only released to VIP friends of the artist and has never been made available to the public. The print shows a wayward and damaged heart-shaped balloon rising above a barbed wire fence. Love Hurts is layered in its meaning and opens up the floor to many interpretations and its unanswered questions showcase a more sophisticated side of the artist. Where does the damage on the balloon come from? Was it from a previous attempt to scale over the prickly barrier, or was it damaged on its own from something long before? Is the balloon stuck in the fence or will it succeed in its attempt to do what balloons inherently do by nature – rise above?

Love Hurts distils a complex scenario into a simple proverb: love can be a very painful experience, but a hopeful heart has the potential to be set free. The Image of the Love Hurts balloon has been used at various times in multiple formats. Spray-painted on the streets of New York in 2017, installed as a painting in Banksy’s Walled Off Hotel in Israel, and it is rumoured that Chris Martin owns the original Love Hurts canvas.
