Kurt Jackson, a leading British contemporary artist, has painted a stunning picture of Porthmeor Cove near Zennor in Cornwall, which has been turned into a limited edition print raising funds for Surfers Against Sewage’s environmental campaigns.
A limited run of 100 signed and numbered prints of the picture have been produced to help support the charity’s on-going and vital work to protect the UK’s waves, oceans and beaches.
“I am delighted to be once again helping SAS carry on with their invaluable work in protecting the marine environment. As an artist (as opposed to a surfer!) who is in contact with the sea and coast almost daily I see at first hand the threats and pressures this fragile environment is facing and therefore appreciate everything that SAS does.”
“Painted at Porthmeor Cove near Zennor in the wilds of West Cornwall. It’s a place I retreat to, to immerse myself in the rawness of nature where a small moorland stream meets a huge Atlantic in a secluded cove.” Kurt Jackson, Cornwall 2014
The collaboration came about with Cornish micro-brewery, St. Ives Brewery, based in St. Ives, which used the Kurt’s stunning artwork for its bottled beer charity collaboration ‘The Artist’s Pint’. Sales of ‘The Artist’s Pint’ will also help raise funds for Surfers Against Sewage’s environmental initiatives.
“It has been an amazing experience working with Kurt Jackson to create a beautiful label for ‘The Artist’s Pint’. Being a surfer and raising money for SAS brings me great pleasure. The beer has been well received and has sold all over the country.” Marco Amura, Founder, St Ives Brewery.
SAS have a limited edition of 100 signed and numbered prints (measuring 50cm x 53 cm) of this beautiful painting to sell
We would like to thank Kurt & Caroline Jackson and St Ives Brewery for their fantastic support which will enable us to further our work protecting the UK’s stunning coastline. Kurt has been a supporter of SAS for many years and we're delighted to be collaborating once again.
