DREAMER FINE ART PRINT
An archival quality fine art print featuring the work of Karl Read will be given to anyone who donates to help us move activism through art.
In response to COVID-19, Amplifier and our partners launched an emergency campaign with top art curators and public-health advisors from around the world to amplify symbols that help promote mental health, well-being, and social change work during these stressful times, as well as visions of the world we know is possible on the other side of this pandemic.
With your help, we will distribute these messages widely, both online and in the physical locations where they are needed most.
"Back in 2017 I painted an outdoor mural titled 'Dreamer', it was a boy on a swing dressed as a traditional superhero, pretending to fly. The image was inspired by my son and looking back to my own childhood. It represented nostalgia and imagination and wanting to be that superhero, someone to look up to and aspire to be like. I wanted to capture in this re-worked version how everyone working in health care right now are the real superheroes. It seemed only right to pay tribute to everything they are doing to help everyone suffering from the effects of this virus. Hopefully this image captures the appreciation we all have for them right now."
