Artist for Trauma’s Collaborating Artists
A large part and unique component of Artists For Trauma (AFT) is the wonderful generosity of our volunteer AFT artists. These artists are established and highly acclaimed in their various disciplines and artistic communities and richly give back to the community through the blessing of their talent.
AFT Artists give their time and creativity but mostly they share spirit. Loving compassionate human spirit through amazing collaboration with our Level 1 Trauma survivors.
AFT would like to recognize and respect these various artists.
It is our honor to feature the first, AFT Celebrity Ambassador Artist, Andre Miripolsky.
Creativity… Connectivity… Community… It takes a Village!
Andre is himself a Level 1 Trauma Survivor. He survived a near fatal automobile crash in 1984 that put him in the hospital for 2 months and irrefutably changed his life.
When Andre became conscious enough to understand what was happening to him; he was immediately driven and compelled to record his experience through artistic expression. Artistic expression of his feelings and perception of the process of his recovery.
The outcome was “Fear No Art, A Crash Course in Reality”. Andre generated much acclaim for his talent and this profound body of Art. You can see a few pieces of his “work” on this page.
AFT salutes you, Andre and recognizes your courage, bravery and tenacity by NEVER GIVING UP and expressing your trauma, recovery and humanity through ART.
