Tom J Newell x Sheffield Doc/Fest

I was invited to produce live artworks at this year's Sheffield Documentary Festival, painting three 32x40" canvasses over three days of the festival, inspired by three of this year's documentaries and Doc/Fest's signature 'Shocking Pink', set up in The Showroom Bar.

The first two canvasses I produced were sold  to people I met whilst painting them, with donations from the profits going to Amnesty and Sheffield Children's Hospital for Pussy Riot and The Big Melt respectively. 'The Act of Killing' canvas is still available if you'd like to get in touch, again with a donation from the sale going to Amnesty.

I'm also hoping to produce prints of all three images in the near future.

Many thanks to Sheffield Doc/Fest and everyone at The Showroom.
