Cancer is the scourge of modern living. With over 1/3 of us expected to have a cancer in our lifetime, everybody is affected. By these artworks raising money they have a direct effect on the issue. 25% of sales of these posters goes to Breast Cancer UK. One in eight women will get breast cancer. In what is described by some as an epidemic, it is increasingly understood that environmental factors play a huge part. BCUK is a small charity working on a prevention strategy that I believe is an excellent approach rather than focussing simply on a cure. Price: £12 plus postage UK A2 size 42 x 59.4 cm / 16.5 x 23.4 inches They can be purchased directly via my webshop on The Great Wall of Vagina site.[show_more more="Read More" less="Read Less" color="#2a7de3" align="right"] Printed on 150gsm silk paper, delivered in a strong, wide, cardboard tube to prevent damage or curling.

Currently on show at Brighton Museum, this is the only place you can buy original artworks by me for just £2.00!! Try to collect all three pieces. All money collected is donated to Voices of Children, a Ukrainian charity helping the psychological rehabilitation of children affected by this war. If you cannot visit the museum please: DONATE HERE! In 2015 I was invited to Ukraine to speak about provocative art at the Eastern Partnership Culture Congress Lviv. The theme was ‘The Mission of Culture During Crisis’. This was the first time I’d been to a country that was at war on its own territory. [show_more more="Read More" less="Read Less"  color="#2a7de3" align="right"] There I met a woman whose brother had been wounded, whilst fighting at the front and was now convalescing. She took from her handbag the pieces of shrapnel that had hit him and a heavy calibre bullet and showed them to me. I was instantly drawn to these objects, which I saw as little nuggets of human suffering. They were tangible symbols of the horror of war. It is
