F(L)IGHT is an exhibition promoting peace through the work of over 140 artists ranging from illustrators and fine artists to animators and street artists from around the world. Each artwork in the show has a white dove integrated within it and a proportion of exhibition sales will be donated to charities War Child and Veterans for Peace.
F(L)IGHT is the idea of artist and curator Paul Roberts, who wanted to use his skills to help, insome way, those effected by the bombings in Syria last year and assist charities combatting the countless atrocities around the world. Gathering artists together, that he already knew along with people he had always wanted to work with, the exhibition idea has become reality with many well respected artists contributing bespoke artworks to the show.
War Child provide life changing support to vulnerable children whose families, schools and communities have been torn apart by war. Veterans for Peace strive to educate people about the true nature of military service and hope to convince people that war is not the solution to solve problems in the 21st century.
Every artwork in the exhibition will be on sale for £50 with 50% profit going to these charities. It is advised to arrive early on the opening reception evening to be sure to secure an artwork of your choice. Any work not sold during the exhibition will be put up in an online shop for one month only to ensure every effort is made to raise as much money as possible for the charities.
