Iconic and infamous artist Banksy is dropping 50 new unique screen prints of his work titled “FRAGILE”, “AGILE” or “LEGACY OF WAR” depending on the source. The important bit–outside the fact that it’s a legit Banksy with proper provenance you can hang at home for less than $10k–is that each one of the 50 rare rat screen prints produced will see all proceeds from sales going directly to the people of Ukraine through the Legacy of War Foundation. As Giles Duley, CEO of Legacy of War Foundation put it, “With the funds raised from this print sale we will immediately be purchasing new ambulances and support vehicles. These are needed in Donbas for the continued evacuation of persons with disabilities, the elderly and civilian casualties. We will be sending generators, gas heaters and solar powered lights to communities who are facing the brutal winter without electricity. And we will be able to continue our support for shelters in Kyiv for women and the LGBTQ community.” Banksy himself followed up with “In Ukraine I saw a Legacy of War team sweep in and provide medical attention, heaters, fresh water and a friendly face to some very desperate people in a bombed out building. They also lent me one of their ambulances to work from, which turned out to be extremely useful when an angry babushka found me painting on her building and called the Police. I feel the least I should do is raise enough money to replace the number plates on the ambulance I hotted up.” Notable art. Better statement. Exemplary cause. You can’t go wrong.
