ArtAttack, the first social networking app designed exclusively for the art world, is delighted to announce its first exclusive print release, a limited edition work by American media artist and painter Raymond Salvatore Harmon. Entitled ‘A World Without War’, it has been produced to mark World Peace Day, which takes place on September 21st, and is part of ArtAttack’s ‘100 for 100,’ (100 prints will be mae in editions of 100, each selling for £100).
The print marks the beginning of the platform’s collaboration with the world’s most promising emerging artists, giving them the opportunity to sell their work to a network of global collectors, and in turn providing collectors with the chance to buy an affordable piece of exciting art.
‘A World Without War’ is the ideal work with which to launch this initiative. In artist Harmon’s own words, ‘The Power of ArtAttack is that it is a platform that democratises art collecting by allowing artists and collectors to develop relationships. Being able to partner with ArtAttack on this print release has given my work a platform that is global, allowing for a broader audience and more excitement.’
An edition of 100, the three-layer silkscreen print on heavy stock acid free paper was printed by the artist himself, measures 22×30 inches (55×76 cm) and will be available to purchase for a friendly £100 ($130).
Drawing on a range of influences and practices, from architectural scale painting to intimate collaged paint works, Harmon has developed an art practice that centers itself in the natural world, while reflecting on the events and turmoils of contemporary existence.
Of this particular work he explains, ‘My print, ‘A World Without War,’ is a contemplation of the concept of World Peace Day and the struggle to find true peace in a seemingly endless world at war. As artists, we have the ability to speak directly about the issues that face mankind and the continued militarisation of global conflict is something I feel needs to be addressed. My print is one of hope for a world truly without war, where mankind realises that we are one people undivided by national boundaries, supposed ethnicities and personal beliefs.’
