Two works by the artist Shawn Bullen

In an effort to multiply the ways in which we can raise funds for our cause and thanks to the generosity of the American artist Shawn Bullen, Healing Venezuela organised for a new initiative : an art auction on Instagram of two paintings of the artist.

Shawn contacted us a couple of months ago from New York to offer us two of his abstract pieces to be auctioned in benefit of Healing Venezuela. 50% of the selling price would go to our charity. If you want to find out more about Shawn and his work go to http://www.shawnbullen.com/
