The Art of Compassion is the first book of its kind—a collection of heartwarming and awakening vegan art from eighty artists around the globe. Through the power of visual and literary art, this book aims to expose the plight of animals, to empower animal rights activists, and to inspire the compassionate lifestyle of veganism. The book was released on Amazon worldwide on June 2, 2019—National Animal Rights Day.
Julie Gueraseva—founder, editor, and designer of LAIKA Magazine—writes: “Through a collection of works from eighty artists, The Art of Compassion showcases the remarkable breadth of contemporary vegan art. Every imaginable style and medium is represented: whether realism or abstract; painting or photography; sculpture or collage; watercolor or digital illustration. If society’s progress is measured by its art, then the sheer volume of animal rights art that is being generated today and the scope of its creativity is a testament that this movement is advancing toward a time of critical mass.”
All proceeds from The Art of Compassion will support Veganuary, an organization dedicated to changing public attitudes and making the transition to veganism as easy and enjoyable as possible.
Jane Land—co-founder of Veganuary—writes: “An insightful collection of work by wonderful artists, The Art of Compassion will inspire and educate the world about the lives of non-human animals. These powerful images capture their beauty, depict their emotions and bring our worlds closer together. Veganuary is honored to be part of this project and to use the proceeds of this book to encourage thousands more people around the world to reduce animal suffering by going vegan.”
The Art of Compassion is complete with an eclectic body of 180 artworks—as well as twenty in-depth artist interviews and seven touching poems. Undoubtedly, it is the perfect coffee table book for every conscious home.
