Online art website ArtforWalls.co.uk has created a collection of limited edition ‘Hugging’ artworks to celebrate Hug Day, the day loved ones are allowed to hug again.
Friends and family in England who don’t live together, or are part of a social bubble, can legally hug from today, as we move to stage three of the roadmap out of lockdown.
ArtforWalls.co.uk commissioned its artists to create 10 original pieces of artwork for a special collection to commemorate Hug Day. The collection comprises artwork that will appeal to people of all ages.
To make the collection even more special, there are just 10 prints of each artwork available to purchase - a total of 100 pieces of art. Each piece comes with an e-certificate of authenticity, confirming that it is a genuine limited edition.
Jonny Baylis, co-founder of ArtforWalls.co.uk, comments: “Never has the country been more in need of a collective hug, as friends and families across the country have had no physical contact outside their social or family bubbles for over a year.
“The past 14 months has felt like an eternity and many people will have wondered if this day would ever come.
“But now as we enter the next stage out of lockdown, it feels like despair has been replaced by hope. And nothing encapsulates that hope more than a simple hug today between a mother and son or a grandparent and grandchild.
“We wanted to celebrate this poignant day when friends and family can finally hug again. These 10 exclusive pieces of art have been created by our artists to commemorate Hug Day, the day a nation was finally able to hug again.”
