Hi, my name is Margarita, I am a designer and visual artist based in London. The idea of my latest project is to create 100 artworks of trees, which will directly fund the planting of 100 real trees.

Aim of the project

The project joins two of my greatest passions - Art and Nature. By depicting each tree in a different style and technique, my aim is to demonstrate their uniqueness, individuality and most importantly their value to our lives and planet. Trees are super important for our health and well-being and are vital for the environment and wildlife, but as our planet becomes more urbanised, we are losing forests and trees every day. This is a global issue and I want to use art as a tool to make a positive impact on nature. 1 artwork = 1 planted tree.

How it works

Each artwork will be unique and original, created by myself in a different style and technique on a standard format of 15x15 cm (6x6"). I will make one hundred works of art (using pencils, pens, markers, ink, paint, charcoal, fabrics, thread, cardboard, photography, laser cutters, 3D printers and much more) all showing a tree, but all of them individual, just like each tree is.

Once the project is complete, I will organise an art exhibition of the 100 artworks in a London gallery, showcasing them to the public before they are sent off to you - their new owners. Part of the sales profits will be used to plant 100 real trees, thanks to a collaboration with Trees for Cities, a UK organisation that is on a mission to plant 1 million trees in UK cities by 2020.

Here are some examples of my artworks:

Paint and ink, pens and pencils, linocut and computer graphics and much much more!

How you can choose an artwork

At the end of the project, you will have the opportunity to pick an artwork of your choice. Once the 100 original artworks are complete, I will send all backers a link to a facebook page with all of the artworks. The first person to leave a comment under an artwork will reserve it!

I like to apply my creative skills in a wide variety of projects, including interior design, branding, graphics and illustration, through which I have won multiple awards and prizes. I began my career path after graduating in Interior & Spatial Design at the University of Hertfordshire branch in Moscow, Russia, and since then my experience spans from working in small interior design studios to large architecture practices in Moscow and London, as well as independent and client work in illustration, graphics and art.

Risks and challenges

As this is an art project that I am working on by myself, there are no real risks associated to it, as I am an experienced designer-artist and confident that I could deliver 100 artworks with no problems. I don't rely on any external factors or collaborations for the creation of the art.

After extensive research, I have identified Trees for Cities as the most suitable organisation to work with on the plantation of 100 trees. If for any reason that doesn't work out, it won't be a problem to collaborate with another organisation who does similar planting activities and projects.
