KLAUS HAAPANIEMI LIMITED EDITION PRINTS TO HELP RAISE MONEY FOR A SOLAR POWER SYSTEM IN KHANAPUR SCHOOL
The lovely people behind some of our production in India have founded a school for unprivileged children in Khanapur. With a help of friends and supporters they have managed to build the school, fund teaching and provide uniforms, materials and computers for the school. As fantastic as a computer can be to learn and connect with the rest of the world, it needs power to run. The village of Khanapur gets only 8 hours of electricity in a day and it is on rotation, often not available during the school hours.
The charity organizing the school has decided to build a solar power system for more efficient and ecological electricity than an expensive generator. We want to help this dream come true by making some beautiful prints of Klaus Haapaniemi’s work. They come in edition of 50 and are signed by the artist.There are two designs: the wonderfully colorful and rich “Peacocks” and the adventurous “Putte The Cat”. All the sale profits will go to the Khanapur School.
