Exhibition of Sacred Works

Funding

Why I need your help

I am sculpting these works in clay in my studio in Florence. I am raising funds to purchase various materials like clay, white resin, and “plaster of Paris”, which I need to create the works. I also need resources to transport these works to Rome for the exhibition and set them up for display.

This is the most important exhibition of my artistic career. For the past 5 months I have been working day and night to complete these sculptures for the beginning of the exhibition in December. I have already invested all my savings and taken out a personal loan to make this happen. I would greatly appreciate any assistance to reach or even go beyond my goal of 20K (the total cost for the exhibit is roughly 60K).

Please support my art

I genuinely believe in this project, the message that my sculptures are meant to deliver and how they communicate it to the viewer. Please feel free to reach out to me, ask me any questions, photos or updates. Sign up for my instagram account where I post updates. If you come to Florence, no matter how much you can help, please let me know and visit my studio. I will be happy to show you around. Thank you.
