After some time, I decided to create a Patreon campaign that would allow me to focus more on my artistic creations and sharing it with others.
I now have everything ready and the day has come for me to launch it.
I would like to invite you all to visit my page and if you can support me in any ways like sharing the campaign on your social media, writing about it, telling your friends or becoming my patron, I will be deeply grateful!
What is Patreon?
Patreon is crowdfunding platform that enables creators obtain funding through the support of their fans by becoming their patron.
Patron can contribute starting from $1 per month and the creator provides various rewards in the return.
Goals and Rewards
My first goal is to obtain $65 per month to be able to cover my material expenses of creating one average-sized acrylic painting. Those may include canvas, paper, paints, brushes, varnish and other relevant tools to complete a piece.
In return I provide various rewards that are divided into 6 different tiers.
- Patron (from $1)
- Charles Saatchi (from $5)
- Peggy Guggenheim (from $10)
- Lord Chesterfield (from $20)
- The Sforza Family (from $50) — Limited to 3 patrons
- The Medici (from $100) — Limited to 3 patrons (for organisations, institutions, corporations, museums and others)
Each tier presents new and additional rewards that are added to the rewards from previous tiers.
Sale of Paintings and The Art Room Charity
The paintings will be sold through world’s leading online gallery called Saatchi Art and prices include worldwide shipping.
3% of all my paintings profits will be donated to The Art Room Charity in Oxford, UK who help children and young people explore their feelings, express themselves and grow in confidence.
Further Details About Me and my Artwork
I create in the fields of design, photography and art, but specifically with art, I’m able to explore how I feel in the current society and in the present moment.
In my art, I tackle the basic social and philosophical principles and dilemmas like happiness, fear of opening oneself, reaching one’s full potential, creativity, spirituality, self-expression, logic, following one’s true passion and purpose in life, integration, mindfulness, freedom and more.
I express my explorations through the use of simple, playful yet symbolistic shapes and colours that we see in our everyday lives as well as shapes of my own invention.
I would like to share these ideas with others.
