Portrait Amnesty has been several years in the making and aims to bring supporters of Amnesty International’s campaigns into the spotlight through painted portraits by Dan Llywelyn Hall. Personalities from all walks of life will feature in the series and be unveiled by the sitters over the course of the next two years. Awareness through each unveiling will help to broaden the charity’s work in both the U.K. and the world over, standing up for human rights. The portraits will ultimately go to a public auction to raise funds for the charity. A limited edition of prints will be made from each portrait and made available to the public. Project info HERE
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people in over 150 countries and territories who campaign to end abuses of human rights.
