Artist Support Pledge

I’m selling a number of works on paper as part of the artists support pledge via my instagram page @sam_derounian . See below for more about the initiative:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support, gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress @matthewburrowsstudio has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge

The concept is a simple one. You post images of your work you are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping.) Every time you reach £1000 of sales you pledge to buy another artist’s work for £200.

NB: I’m donating 10% of all sales to the Paddington North food bank in London.


Sam will be screening video documentation of his work Sketch (2016) at STAGED ON SCREEN – a screening program organised and curated by Staged Performance (Kaitlyn Walker-Stewart). The screenings will showcase artists working with performance and/or moving image and will posit connections between performance and the digital archive/documentation/digital translations of liveness.
