8-year-old launches art exhibition to raise money for the Trussell Trust

8-year-old Rollo Jensen has created a Coronavirus-themed art exhibition. He is raising money to help people who have been affected by Covid-19 and are struggling to put food on the table. Rollo has created pieces in the style of famous artists he likes, but with a coronavirus twist. He is looking to raise money for The Trussell Trust. The charity supports a nationwide network of UK food banks helping those in need. Rollo’s aim was to raise £1,000, and he’s currently at £1,092. When lockdown is lifted, he would like to hold an exhibition to sell the paintings to raise more money for The Trussell Trust. The 8 pieces in his exhibition are:

“We All Stand Together” Toilet paper collage inspired by Peter Blake & Damien Hirst

“Thank You” Inspired by Tracey Emin (neon kindly created and donated by Andesigneon. )
