This year 12 vegan artists from around the world got together to create the ‘2015 Vegan Art Calendar’ in aid of Hillside Animal Sanctuary in England. The aim of the calendar is to raise people’s awareness of veganism through the compassionate ideology depicted in the artists’ work. Each month features a beautiful and revealing image of our relationship with animals, highlighting the individuality of farmed animals and the contradictory nature of loving some companion animals while continuing to eat other beings.
The artists involved come from the UK, Spain, Catalonia, France, the USA and Singapore.
All proceeds go to Hillside Animal Sanctuary which was founded to help and campaign for animals in need, particularly those who suffer every day in the intensive factory farming industry. In 1995, with just 20 acres of land, Hillside began rescuing animals. Since then their numbers have steadily grown and they are now home to around 2000 rescued animals living on over 1000 acres, which includes Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary at West Runton.
Hillside’s ability to save so many lives is attributable to the loyal help of their supporters, through whom they have been able to turn a vision into reality.
Hahnemühle and Rosemary & Co Artists’ Brushes kindly sponsored the art paper and synthetic paintbrushes used to create the paintings.
