Bristol, U.K. producer duo Massive Attack will sell off two pieces of artwork created and signed by singer Robert “3D” Del Naja in support of Ukraine.
Dubbed the “Fire Sale,” all proceeds from the pieces will go directly to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), an umbrella group of U.K. charities that coordinates resources for humanitarian aid. Currently, the group is aiding those affected by Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
Both of the art pieces are called “War in Ukraine” and will be sold as prints for £150 (roughly $195 USD) each. Both runs will have ten “randomly allocated, hand-finished” editions by Del Naja. As of this writing, the sale will run until March 22, 2022.
Originally sold as one item, popularity for the artwork quickly grew and Del Naja decided to release a second print. “Due to the overwhelming support we are launching a second edition,” he wrote on Instagram. “All proceeds will be donated to the DEC appeal [the area of the DEC responsible for providing aid in Ukraine].”
Beginning on February 24th, Russian President Vladimir Putin launched what he called a “special military operation” into the country of Ukraine. The resulting campaign has caused a humanitarian crisis in the region with millions of people forced to flee the war zone.
Those interested in purchasing a print can do so on the Fire Sale website.
