The DIY Supermarket Charity Art Prints
Part of an exclusive range of prints created as a collaboration between The DIY Supermarket and a number of our wonderful creatives, raising funds to help support NHS Together & Off The Record Bristol. All profits of these print sales will be split between these two extremely deserving charities. During these “strange and uncertain times” we wanted to help in a way that would bring joy to everyone involved.
The brief given to the artists was ‘Pockets of Happiness’ or ‘Life’s Simple Pleasures’, things that you come across day to day that perhaps are only noticing now how important they are and how much joy they bring. This could be a new leaf on a plant, sun coming through your window at a particular time of day, when you froth the milk by accident for your coffee by shaking the carton and feel fancy AF. Left open to interpretation to mirror each individual creatives thoughts and feelings towards the theme.

‘This project, and drawing in general, has really helped me to stay grounded during quarantine – it’s so easy to lose track of time and feel a bit lost, but being able to sit down and draw every day is quite therapeutic for me. It’s a really unique time in our lives and has allowed everything to slow down so we can take a step back and look at things from another perspective. I’ve never been more aware of the birds singing or the leaves growing back on the trees, and while it seems like every day is merging into one I’m starting to feel like maybe that’s not a bad thing!.’ Charlotte Ross 2020
