In 2020, we embarked on a Mission of Love to Boracay in The Philippines. There we met the wonderful Ati Tribe and founded We Art Love. The Ati children crafted their individual little hearts with phenomenal excitement and joy!
Internationally renowned artist, Christian Palmer, took all the little individual hearts back with him to his studio in Byron Bay and skillfully crafted these 3 masterpieces. This wonderful triptych, named Ati Hearts, reflects the unity & love within the community.
Ati Hearts is connected to Mission of Love (Voluntary Organisation: VO 1750) as its cause of choice. Mission of Love was set up in 1992 by Patrick and Maria O’Cock where you are able to sponsor a child for €25 per month. The cost of living is increasing and not everyone there is blessed with a sponsor.
There are three colourway editions of the Ati Heart, each with a different focus – Health, Nutrition, and Education. All profits from every purchase go directly towards caring for, feeding, and educating children in the Ati Tribe. It’s astonishing how much positive impact €120 will make!
With exhibitions in New York, London, LA, Europe, Asia and Australia, Christian Palmer is well renowned internationally for his pictures of edgy misfit animals paired with graffiti-styled lyrical phrases.
“Christian Palmer is a Byron Bay-based artist from London whose work is a collision between the confines of an establishment fine art background (Central Saint Martins, London) and the pull of the urban contemporary street art movement with its unrestricted communication and interaction through public spaces. Palmer’s rise in the global urban art scene kicked off following group exhibitions with street artists including Banksy and T.WAT to name just a few. His work is now exhibited Globally.”
Buying this art will help save lives. Together, we can make the world a better place.
