Far East Events

My Donation for ‘Children Around the World’, Shanghai

On Sunday 2 March 2014 a live auction took place at the Shanghai exhibition center, including steelmesh sculpture PROTU depicting a baby, a small version of my major artwork commissioned for the Millennium Dome, London, in the year 2000. This tiny maquette fetched RMB 23,000 (approx. £2,300.00) and all funds go towards helping children with birth defects to have corrective surgery with "Children Around the World".
Congratulations to Jenny, PROTU's new onwer and many thanks to Lydia Forbes and Stephanie Harwood for inviting me to represent the UK in this event and for making it happen.
