Maser has announced that he will be raffling his original Homebird painting with all profits going towards the Mater Foundation.
Irish contemporary artist Maser has been working on Homebird over the past few weeks, with the inspiration coming from the fact that so many of us are confined to our homes as we continue to battle Covid-19.

Homebird. Release next Monday the 20th at 2pm. Limited edition print of 200 signed and numbered. €100 each. 50% of profits will go directly to the Mater Foundation [CHY9768]. Your donation will support frontline staff and patient care in the fight against Covid-19 and I hope you will join me in supporting them. For many, home has recently become a destination for work, education, creativity and communication in equal balance. It is not just a place to share moments with family or friends, it is now a place that keeps us safe. #homebird 💙 @materfoundation
Of the piece, Maser says: 'the phrase ‘Homebird’ regularly describes a softer side to people. Except in times like these. Now, it is a word that describes group action and strength towards positive change.'
Over the weekend, he confirmed that he was selling 200 limited edition Homebird pieces, with 50% of sales going towards the Mater Foundation, in support of those fighting on the frontline of the crisis. If that's not enough, Maser has now announced that he will be raffling the original painting, with all profits going towards the same cause.
A GoFundMe page has been set up, with all donors automatically entered into the raffle and the winner will be announced live on Maser's social channels as well as the GoFundMe page on Friday May 1 at 3pm.
Not only is Homebird a visually great piece but it will also be a reminder of the tough times we will have endured by the end of the coronavirus crisis. As well as that, it's a great opportunity to help out a cause that very much needs it right now. More information can be found on Maser's Instagram page here.
