Size: 4" X 6" (10.2cm X 15.2cm) Card

This is a 4" X 6" Oil on Card painting and isn't for sale on this site as it is now owned by Andrew Ku in New York, USA and was sold in support of Visual AIDS. Visual AIDS held an event on the weekend of 26th and 27th January 2013 at the Sikkema Jenkins & Co Gallery in New York, USA titled Postcards From The Edge. All of the proceeds that were made from the sale of small 4" X 6" postcard style paintings, sold for $85 each, were used for HIV and AIDS prevention and to support artists living with the disease.

The exhibition took place at the Sikkema Jenkins & Co Gallery, 530 West 22nd Street, New York, NY, 1001, USA on the 26th and 27th January 2013, with a full preview show on 25th January 2013.

In total 1,417 postcard sized works were exhibited and more than a 1,000 people attended over the weekend that it was held. The total amount that Visual AIDS raised from this benefit was just over $90,000.

If you do like this painting, I have a very similar one from 2012 that is entitled Slip and Squash
