AMASS.life is selling affordable prints from over 100 artists, including Brad Elterman and Janette Beckman, with all proceeds going to the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund
AMASS.life, a New York City-based non-profit, was formed in March 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Artists Christian Weber and Zach Gold, wanting to bring some purpose to their lockdown lives, reached out to photographers, directors, and artists from all over the world to take part in their new initiative: supporting New York City’s frontline workers by selling a work of visual art.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, artists have been responding directly or indirectly to the crisis we currently face. AMASS.life is highlighting the dedication and creativity of the art community—which has itself been hard-hit by the crisis—while allowing us to donate to a crucial cause.
From moody body study prints to dreamy Hubble telescope shots and pixelated digital art, Weber and Gold have curated a plethora of alluring imagery by upcoming artists like Brendan Donnelly, known for his intricate graphic designs; Dalel Bacre, who incorporates choreography into her portraiture; and Stefano Rosselli, who captures the eerie essence of public transit riders amidst early stages of the pandemic. Their work appears alongside that of art world heavyweights—including legendary music photographers Brad Elterman and Janette Beckman, and fashion filmmaker Barnaby Roper, who has worked with Chanel and David Bowie.
Prints are being sold for $95 with 100 percent of contributions raised to benefit the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund.
