Daphne`s restaurant in London has teamed up with some of the UK`s best loved celebrities to produce artwork with auction proceeds raising vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children`s Charity.
The 13 unique unique interpretations of a pen and ink sketch were created by an array of actors, presenters, artists, designers and musicians including Alison Jackson, Helena Bonham Carter, Zaha Hadid, Victoria Pendleton, Jade Jagger, Jessie J, Ronnie Wood and Bill Nighy.
The sketch – a simple heart-shaped design created by East London illustrator, Emiloumakes – was inspired by the children`s cardiology unit at Great Ormond Street.
The celebrities work offers a rare insight into their minds and personal style through their own creative interpretation.
Richard Caring, owner of Daphne’s, said: “Daphne’s is a traditional local Italian restaurant and at weekends the place is full of the sound of laughter as children eat with their parents and grandparents. With this in mind we teamed up with Great Ormond Street Hospital so we could help them raise money through the Daphne’s Drawings`.
The celebrity designed artwork will be exhibited and for sale in the restaurant at £1000 each.
The 50cm x 70cm paintings will be hung in Daphne`s from Wednesday, 4 September until Tuesday, 1 October.
Rebecca Tyrrell of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children`s Charity said `We`re delighted that Daphne`s has chosen to support the charity. We can`t wait to see the beautiful works of art and the money raised will help us to make a real difference`.
