If one person can spend 20 hours a day (on four hours sleep) for seven months continuously, creating a painting of over 17,000 square feet on his own, imagine what 7.5 billion people could do together if we stopped the nonsense of discrimination, judgement and agenda. One World, One Soul, One Planet’.
Wise words by British artist and philanthropist, Sacha Jafri.
If you think the name sounds familiar, that’s because his journey began in Atlantis, The Palm, back in July 2020. His charitable initiative ‘Humanity Inspired’ transformed into a beautiful painting.
Sacha Jafri’s ‘The Journey Of Humanity’ painting holds the World Record for ‘The Largest Art Canvas’ in the world
An impressive 17,000 square feet ‘The Journey Of Humanity’ was created in the ballroom at Atlantis, The Palm while the world was in lockdown. The artwork took seven months to complete. The artist dedicated 20 hours from his day to create his masterpiece. The global reach was PHENOMENAL with over 2.5 BILLION individuals.
The Journey Of Humanity has been broken down into 70 individually framed pieces which will be sold across four auctions sometime in 2021
