Original Oil Painting
Year produced 2020
40cm x 60cm
“Joes’ Wall” is an oil on canvas painting of Joe Crow. Joe is homeless and he lives on the streets of Winchester. Joe is one of the most gentle guys that I have ever encountered. He lives every second of his life and every second of his life is full of fear, anxiety, joy and hope.
I wanted the painting to shout and scream at those in power who do not help the homeless and who are happy for the homeless to be invisible, to fade away.
Joe fades into the graffiti yet his smile, his hope dominate the picture as they do in real life.
I am happy to announce that 30% of all the proceeds of the sale will go to charity. The charities that I donate to are The Innocence Project based in the US and New Hope based in the UK. The Innocence Project’s mission is to free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated, and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment (www.innocenceproject.org). New Hope exists to serve individuals who are homeless or vulnerably-housed through the provision of accommodation and opportunities to transform lives (www.newhope.org.uk)
The painting will be delivered professionally in a hand crafted frame together with a signed certificate of authenticity. The painting will be tracked and insured during delivery. Delivery is free.
