I am really pleased to announce that BLUEFIELD PARTNERS has enthusiastically embraced this initiative. They are a thriving business with strong ethical and environmental values, and I could not be any prouder to have them as the first client for my pilot "Art for Trash" project through their (super cool, super stylish) London City office!
Helping people to understand and to get into the habit of sorting out the rubbish, and recycling properly
Stimulating re-thinking by providing a different perspective on waste: our rubbish could be someone else's treasure. It could be re-used / re-purposed / upcycled (if not reduced or, ideally, prevented)
Providing an example of cradle-to-cradle approach, suggesting the adoption of a circular economy
Adding some fun and teamwork spirit in the office - hopefully even pride in the result
Getting a bespoke artwork for the office in return. It will be carbon neutral, original, hopefully striking both for the message and the material, and definitely on trend!
The first 3 commissions will be FREE (ALREADY CARRIED OUT - SORRY!)
I will then ask for a flat fee of £950 per board, up to a maximum of 9 per project.
The boards are 20x20inch (50.8x50.8cm), 4cm deep (+ the depth of the material added).
50% of the costs to be paid upfront, full balance at the time of delivery. Payment by bank transfer.
Lastly, PLEASE NOTE that 10% of the amount received will be donated to an environmental charity for an environmental cause: whether the "Save the Arctic" campaign by Greenpeace, the "Make your postcode 10xgreener" by Friends of the Earth, Extinction Rebellion or the Jane Goodall Institute UK (to give a few examples), it will be donated to the environmental cause which I believe to be more pressing at the time of the payment. I take suggestions though... which one do you most believe in? (You could have a vote in the office!)
