Artists from 49 countries submitted over 900 pieces of art for the Twitter Art Exhibit 2022 in support of the Encephalitis Society in June, 2022.

Over 200 visitors attended the exhibit at the Hiscox Building in York, on the 25th and 26th June where they had the first chance to view - and buy - the artwork.

The remaining artwork is now on available online to view and buy until the end of July.

Each year, supporters of the Twitter Art Exhibit submit post-card sized artwork, all of which is sold for £30 to raise money for a nominated charity.

The Encephalitis Society was chosen to be the 2022 beneficiary, thanks to actor Mathew Bose, an Ambassador of the Society and curator of this year's exhibition.

Mathew said, “The motto of the Twitter Art Exhibition is, 'through art, we can change the world', and this weekend, we really saw this come to life. Artists from 49 countries including USA, India, Canada, Germany, were all connecting and supporting each other. We saw customers purchasing art and then engaging with the artist directly. We even saw talented artists share their work for the very first time and the wave of support and encouragement was incredible. It made an impact, and for that I’m truly grateful.

 “I’m immensely proud that York was able to host this event, and I’m delighted that we’ve already sold so much of the artwork. But there are still more pieces available, so please do browse the online exhibit to purchase your own piece of art and support the Encephalitis Society.”

Dr Ava Easton, Chief Executive of the Encephalitis Society, said: “It has been a humbling experience to see first-hand the sheer scale of support for this event, and ultimately the Encephalitis Society. The time and dedication from these talented artists is invaluable and not only have they raised money for our life-saving work, but they’ve raised awareness about a devastating condition which can affect absolutely anyone.

 “We are very grateful to each and every artist, customer and also to the whole team at the Twitter Art Exhibit for choosing us as their beneficiary charity. Finally, I’d like to say a very special thank you to our own ambassador, Mathew Bose, for curating a fiercely impactful exhibition.”
