Richard was invited to work with the kids at a school in 2016 by Mellon Educate. It inspired me to invite the kids to my studio and do a collaborative painting with them. The kids came over and we got stuck in. While each of them did their own piece, we also set about working on the bigger canvas. Once the kids finished doodling I added on of my iconic Trees of Life to the work to add extra value. The original artwork was sold in the inaugural Mellon fundraiser for £11,000. What you see here is a limited series of prints of the paintings and the kids and I painted.
