Why Do You Paint? Artists answer the question in a moving video called Art for Life.
LA abstract artist Clara Berta participated in the Art for Life video to support finding a cure for cancer.
Clara Berta says, “We are all artists and we are all for finding a cure for cancer! I’m delighted to support this wonderful cause through our artistic work.” Matt shares below how he created this heartfelt campaign.
“As most of you already know, I don’t shy away from supporting my community — especially when it comes to the fight against cancer. I created the Matt LeBlanc Art for Life Campaign last year to raise awareness and much-needed funds for the Tree of Hope Campaign, an annual event by the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont Hospital Foundation in Moncton. The campaign was a huge success — I raised a grand total of $38,000 for the foundation. You can read about last year’s campaign below.
As a way to kick off my awareness effort this year, I went to my fellow artists for some help. I’ve spent the last two months putting together an online video with 24 other artists from North America and as far away as Australia. The idea is simple — each artist answers one question: Why do you paint? The video is a collection of answers from these artists. The video ends with a powerful message:
Painting is life.
We love to paint and we love life.
We are all artists and we are all for finding a cure for cancer.
