Art for Haiti

140hours is a new company that has revolutionized Art Auctions by conducting them online - on Twitter no less. And now they are having an Art Auction today, the 29th of Jan 2010, to support the cause of Haiti. 100% of the proceeds from the Haitian Relief Art Auction (HRAA) will be donated to the earthquake victims at Haiti. The auction goes live at New York beginning 9 p.m EST and will go on for 48 hours.

A lot of artists and photographers have donated paintings and photos for this cause. You can see all the works that are to be auctioned here. Three of my paintings are also being auctioned. You can see all of them on the auction webpage.

For all Art lovers who have thought about owning an original piece of Art but have never got around to it, this cause is a great way to make a start! Please spread the word among all art lovers so that they don't miss the chance to bid.

I'd like to thank Gary Brant, the CEO of 140hours.com for this opportunity. Great work by you and the whole team Gary!
