Norwegian Street Artist Pøbel is offering artists proofs of his “The Lovers” print to raise funds for Covid-19 efforts in the Amazon. Today you have an opportunity to get an original and unique piece that has been featured on many publications since he first put this image of a couple in embrace on the streets.
He tells us that he’s travelled many times to South America and has made friends with folks in indigenous communities. “Many of these are now suffering due to the pandemic, and we hear little about this in our part of the world. Hospitals have been collapsed for months, some are dying in the streets, the government restrictions and economic fall make it impossible for many people who live day-by-day to get what they need.”
100 % of this sale is going to a goo friend of his who has studied with and lived with different indigenous families for a decade, he says. “The indigenous people are strong and their ancestors have survived similar things in the past on their own, but this time I, like many others, would like to reach out a helping hand to try to do some good.”
