The gracious and alluring power of Tony Gum is hard to ignore.
The smart-beyond-her-youth artist, represented by Christopher Moller Gallery, is most definitely one to watch, not only for her talent, but for the good work she’s doing.
“I am an artist in learning and being able to help by producing art seems too good to be true,” she shares.
Tony is donating art to the ArtAngels Initiative annual fundraiser that has raised over R18 million and supports the NGO The Click Foundation that is transforming the educational system of schools through introducing innovative technology for effective learning.
“The work that The Click Foundation does for literacy is close to my heart because I believe in education as a foundation for growing your dreams.”
Though this is “all brand new” to her, what started as a conversation at this year’s FNB Joburg Art Fair “set off something inside me and I decided to dive in and get involved,” she says.
“This year’s charity auction was my first – and a first of many.”
