As the world continues the fight against COVID-19, it is more important than ever to look for the positives and to give back when possible. INK Entertainment’s Taglialatella Galleries is thrilled to be partnering with legendary pop-artist, Mr. Brainwash, on a limited edition We Love Canada print.
Available for purchase on April 30th, 10 per cent of sales will be donated to Street Haven, a local organization supporting women experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness.
“We wanted to take a moment to pay our respects to the incredible Canadians working tirelessly for our health and safety right now,” says Alan Ganev, Director, Taglialatella Galleries Toronto. “Art has the ability to bring joy in the most challenging times. With an artist like Mr. Brainwash, where love and happiness play a central role in each piece, the We Love Canada print is an opportunity to express gratitude, give back and remember this moment of history in years to come.”
As the Canadian outpost of the Taglialatella brand, Taglialatella Galleries New York launched an Art for Relief campaign in March to share positive imagery and support local charities during this time. Featuring internationally renowned artists like Mr. Brainwash, Burton Morris and Russell Young, the Art for Relief campaign has raised nearly $20,000 USD.
In July 2019, Mr. Brainwash visited Toronto with Taglialatella Galleries as part of the first-ever Yorkville Murals festival, where he painted a 70 by seven-foot mural. Located in the courtyard of 99 Yorkville Avenue, the mural featured vibrant colours and motivating captions including “never give up” and “love”.
