21 December 2018
MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Peace Paper's plight for peace has gone international with the reveal of the latest edition of its signature wrapping paper that features donated artwork from more than a dozen well-known artists from across the globe. The non-profit initiative, which makes premium-quality giftwrap on a mission to spread peace and kindness, is committed to funding peace education in schools. This newly released edition, ready just in time for the holidays, will help in that fundraising effort.
Some of the featured artists include:
- Cachete Jack (Spain)
- Paul Thurbly (England)
- Ana Zaja Petrak (Croatia)
- Eni (Santiago Usano Martinez) (Spain)
- Claudia Pearson (England)
- Egle Plytnikaite (Lithuania)
- Eric van den Boom (Netherlands)
- Takeuma (Japan)
- Jaye Kang (China)
- Jason Naylor (New York)
- Jim Dryden (Minneapolis)
"We started Peace Paper as an all-inclusive art collaboration that is dedicated to spreading positivity in our world at a time when it is greatly needed, and we are so excited that artists of this impressive caliber feel moved to join our cause," said Periscope's chief creative officer Peter Nicholson. "It was an amazing process transforming art from numerous unique painters and illustrators into a blended tapestry that embodies so many different styles all committed to one single message of peace."
The artists were invited to share their own interpretations of peace, and their original work will only be seen in Peace Paper.
Cachete Jack, featured artist: "For us as illustrators, communication is really important. Being able to communicate is also really important for peace. Understanding others and feeling free to express yourself in all situations is essential to finding peace."
Jason Naylor, featured artist: "I've always been a big proponent of individuality, and the best way to represent this is with color. It doesn't matter who you are, be the kindest, most colorful version of you. You'd be surprised at how far you can get in life, just by being kind."
Eni (Santiago Usano Martinez), featured artist: "I practice meditation every day and it's where I find myself peacefully in mindfulness state, and I thought that it would be a nice idea for my contribution. Be first in peace with yourself and then be at peace with others."
The international artist edition of Peace Paper will be shared with Periscope's family, friends and clients during the holidays and will be available for purchase to the public on the Peace Paper website in early 2019.
