Russell Brand And UK Artist Lincoln Townley Collaborate Again For Abstinence-Based Recovery Charity

Tereza Pevna | 23rd January 2015


In December 2014, Russell Brand commissioned a portrait by UK artist Lincoln Townley to raise funds for the Abstinence-Based Recovery Trust. The collaboration was a huge success and raised $20,000 in New York. This led Russell to commission a second portrait, which will be auctioned in February on the international online auction

Russell Brand commented:  Lincolns work has an edge and an honesty that I love. Were both patrons of the ABR Trust and this is part of a long-term collaboration to raise funds for a charity that gives hope to people with a dependency on alcohol or drugs.

Lincoln said: I was delighted with the money we raised with the first portrait and Im hoping this will do the same. Every day is a battle for my sobriety so to work with Russell on behalf the ABR Trust is very special for me.

Russell and Lincoln have signed the portrait on the back.
