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.

‘The thing I’m missing most in lockdown is nature, and just being outside. What’s been nice is that now our mornings are a little longer & slower (not having to run off to work, or scurrying around and being busy) I have a little more time to sit and enjoy my morning cup of coffee. I’ve noticed that there’s so much birdsong! And stillness. That’s been lovely to discover. The little notebook is there, as for me, I feel most productive in the morning. It’s a hard time for everyone at the moment, but I think taking time to enjoy the small moments in the day that we’d normally miss, really helps. Thank you to Beth for putting this altogether. Please help by supporting and buying prints :).’ Lizzie Lomax 2020
