Artist Support Pledge

Text and pictures by

project initiated by Matthew Burrows

Here is another idea taking form currently on Intagram


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support and gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress London based artist Matthew Burrows has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge

The concept is a simple. Artists post images of their work, on Instigram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 of sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artist/s work.

To make a pledge, post your work with the #artistsupportpledge and follow the # to see everyone else's work. Keep updated on new opportunities and announcements @artistsupportpledge Repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors. Let generosity be infectious.

And don't forget to use the hashtags
