Matt Damon Portrait for Pieta

MATT DAMON PORTRAIT FOR PIETA 


48361406_1590664197144685_r.jpeg

During the lockdown, I've taken to drawing well-known Irish faces and for the most part, these portraits reflect the pandemic in Ireland. The drawings gained quite a lot of attraction and notoriety, and two weeks ago I figured who better than Matt Damon to draw as a representation of life during the pandemic in Ireland. 

We managed to get that drawing to Matt Damon in Dalkey, and he kindly signed the drawing for us with the understanding that the drawing would then go towards a fundraiser for Pieta House.

Although you are free to donate what you please, only entries over €20 will be deemed eligible to win the drawing. It would be incredible to raise as much money as we can for such an important and vital service.

I am also selling a limited number of 20 prints of this signed drawing for €1,000 each. I will sign and number each of the prints personally, and all of those proceeds will also go to Pieta House. The prints are available for purchase here 

The video above explains how we managed to do all this, but it would be remiss of me not to write a special thanks to Ian Redmond, Doug Leddin, Matt Baiamonte and of course, Matt Damon himself.

WINNER WILL BE SELECTED ON FRIDAY, THE 19TH OF JUNE
