This print sale is raising money for COVID-19 relief in India

Art for India is supporting the urgent operation to import and distribute vital medical equipment in the country

Since the start of the outbreak, cases of COVID-19 in India are now approaching 20 million. As the death toll rises and the crisis spirals out of control, the nation is in ever more desperate need of medical oxygen, hospital beds, and vaccines. 

Art for India is a print sale launched to raise urgent funds. Leading artists from India and the diaspora, including @bharatsikkastudio, @prarthnasingh, @kalpeshlathigra, and @ashishisshah among many more, have all donated images to the project. 

Founded by photographer Vivek Vadoliya, brand consultant Heta Fell, and Riposte editor Danielle Pender, the print sale’s inaugural statement declares, “Like you, we are completely heartbroken and devastated seeing how the pandemic is ravaging India.” Pledging their support to Mission Oxygen, Art for India will aid the urgent operation to import oxygen concentrators and distribute them to hospitals across the country.

Prints cost £100 each plus shipping and 100 per cent of profits benefit this vital cause. But the sale ends Sunday May 9, so don’t waste time if you’d like to help out India in its time of dire need whilst also carrying off a beautiful print by a renowned artist.

Art for India is live until Sunday May 9. You can contribute by buying a print here – take a look at a selection below.
