Water Works Fundraiser for JapanMarch 18, 2011
Tomorrow night, Giant Robot Los Angeles will be holding “Water Works”, a benefit for UNICEF and the child victims of the earthquake in Japan. There will be numerous artworks for sale, as well as other items, raffles, and events, with proceeds going to UNICEF, and of course cash donations will be accepted.
This event was initially to raise money for clean water efforts in Vietnam, but due to the catastrophic events in Japan, and considering Giant Robot’s ties to Japan, the decision was made to allocate funds where they are needed most at the present time.
Here’s the piece I created for the show, titled “Minus World”
It’s an edition of 10, and 100% of the sale will go to UNICEF and the children in Japan affected by this tragedy. At the risk of offending anyone, I want to state that this piece was created for the original fundraiser, which was for clean water efforts. It is in no way meant to depict the tsunami and I hope no one directly affected by the disaster takes it that way.
