The Breath of Life Portfolio was published by CCA Galleries in 2010 for the British Heart Foundation's Mending Broken Hearts Appeal, an ongoing effort to raise awareness and funds for the British Heart Foundation (BHF) through contemporary art.
Fifteen leading British contemporary artists were invited to create an original limited-edition print based on the theme ‘mending broken hearts’, which they could interpret in any way they chose. The result is a diverse collection of unique images, each with its own story and personal resonance for the artist, that represents hope and the redemptive power of love.
The artists who have contributed are Sir Peter Blake, John Hoyland, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Hughes, Donald Hamilton Fraser, Tom Phillips, Barbara Rae, Bruce McLean, Antony Micallef, Maurice Cockrill, Duggie Fields, Gerard Hemsworth, Brad Faine, Storm Thorgerson and Maggi Hambling.
All profits from sales of these prints goes to the BHF.
