Ragamuffins to benefit from art auction.
A white pigeon flutters free, liberated from its cage by a girl with long raven hair. A small boy wearing a blue and yellow baseball cap waves his arms in delight as a butterfly beats its wings in the wind.
A couple engage in a mock dog fight with a fleet of paper aeroplanes. Self-taught Indonesian painter Mohammad Toha Hasan, the man behind these rich, colour- saturated acrylic creations, is one of several artists whose work features in a silent art auction this week. Life Creative: The Meaning of Love is hosted by arts therapy organisation The Ragamuffin Project.
Among the works on offer are watercolours by Australian Tony Smibert, whose “unusual approach to English watercolour actually grew out of the study of Japanese martial art”, and oils by Italian Guido Borelli, who counts among his collectors Jack Nicholson and former US president Jimmy Carter.
