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.
Ellastrated – Happy Things
Available in A4 printed onto archival cotton rag paper, 310gsm.
‘Ella’s pockets of happiness:
1. FaceTiming my mum and chatting rubbish for hours! Topics usually include how sexy joe wicks is, how many people she counted in the queues of supermarkets on her daily walk, and what she had on her weetabix!
2. Date nights in a dressing gown? Why didn’t we do this before?
3. Sunsets seem to be extra fabulous, like the sun knows more people are bored and watching 🌞
4. I live next to a farm and like to say hi to the pigs as I walk past! I now follow so many cute pig instagrams and have a newfound appreciation for them 🐷
5. My friends shock when I actually know the answer to a quiz question because it was on joe wicks that morning
6. I think we should leave the rainbow decorations up all year round 🌈’ Ellastrated 2020
