Breathless and Beautiful Tin Man – auction for the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

I am jogging/walking/crawling the Auckland and Queenstown half marathons in October and November to raise funds and awareness for the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

Tin Man was born in 2001 as a one-off artwork crafted in wood and mixed media by Tony Cribb. Since then things have gone well for Tin Man who has starred in numerous adventures with themes from the serious to the completely ludicrous.

He has contemplated life in all its complexities, been attacked by the beer monster and swapped his head for a goldfish. Tin Man has proven to be much more than a rustic orange character. He has become a friend to many - an observer of social commentary and a metaphor for exploring life with all its good, bad & wobbly bits. The Adventures of Tin Man are simple, which in an ever growing complicated world must be a good thing.

This piece is a 30 x 30 cm black box frame, PERSONALLY SIGNED by the artist.

The Charity – The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand's vision is for a society where all people flourish, Working towards creating a society free from discrimination, where all people enjoy positive mental health & wellbeing.

The work is diverse and expansive, with campaigns and services that cover all aspects of mental health and wellbeing. They take a holistic approach to mental health, promoting what they know makes and keeps people mentally well.

The auction winner will be sent a link to my fundraising page (pay by credit or debit card) or if need to pay by internet banking, a bank account will be provided and I will then provide you proof of transfer of funds to fundraising account. I will post the art work free of charge (tracked).

You can also text TALK to 2446 to donate $3.00 to the Foundation.

Thank you to Tony and Pipa Cribb for your support!
