A new exhibition at Zebra One Gallery titled With Art in Mind will show the work of contemporary artists who have dealt with mental health issues to help raise money for the Mental Health Foundation.
The show will feature work by iconic artists Salvador Dalí, Andy Warhol and Francis Bacon as well as new work from major contemporary artists, many of whom have created work exclusively for the show.
The artists include: Kim Noble, “the artist with 21 personalities” whose work explores her alter egos as part of her Dissociative Identity Disorder; Charlie and Eddie Proudfoot, brothers from New York who have used their art as therapy to communicate with the outside world; mixed-media artist Gerry Laffy who used to be Duran Duran’s guitarist; and psychologist and artist Lee Du Ploy, who paints the patients and people he’s met over the last 30 years, who have all suffered with mental health issues.
Zebra One Gallery’s Gabrielle Du Plooy says of the exhibition: “This is such an important time for everyone to be involved with supporting mental health. To be able to raise awareness in such a positive way, showing how art can be more than a means of support, is fantastic.
“A percentage of sales from these pieces will go to the amazing Mental Health Foundation. They have been successfully running their own art programme for ten years, demonstrating the importance of art to understand, protect and sustain good mental health.”
With Art in Mind opens 16 November at Zebra One Gallery in London.
