Congratulations go to the Freedom from Torture team, whose online art auction – Drawing a Line Under Torture – this week raised over £250k for survivors of torture.

The silent and live auction featured over 50 artworks from established and emerging artists from around the world including Brian Eno, Quentin Blake, and Jake Wood Evans.

Freedom from Torture works with survivors of torture to rebuild their lives in the safety of the UK. 100% of the sale price will go directly support survivors.

Special mention goes to the Cristea Roberts Gallery who do so much charity work and donated several artworks, along with all the artists who gave their artworks and of course Sotheby’s for the use of the space.
