DJW has donated this colourful work to assist Dancing CEOs 2019 to raise funds and awareness for the WLSQ in providing their free legal clinic and hotline to women + kids facing domestic violence.

It was a pleasure to meet you Erin, break a leg!

DONATE HERE: www.dancingceos.com.au/?team=erin-walford๐ŸŽจ N E W S F L A S H ๐ŸŽจ

Leading contemporary Australian Artist, Donald James Waters OAM supports the Womenโ€™s Legal Service Qld by donating an original painting inspired by London Court.

โ€œI have worked with a lot of kids that have experienced domestic violence at home, and I am happy to donate my artwork to the Womenโ€™s Legal Service Qld. Itโ€™s a worthy cause and their services are important to helping break the cycle of family violence,โ€ said Mr Waters.

The one-of-a-kind painting will be part of a fundraising campaign by Erin Walford on behalf of the Womenโ€™s Legal Service Qld in the lead up to the Dancing CEOs event in May 2019. Details relating to the campaign will be released shortly.

Mr Watersโ€™ phenomenal collection of art work can be seen here: www.djwaters.com.au.

As if his dress sense was not embarrassing enough, DJW takes this extremely haggard and worn sketch book accompanied by childrenโ€™s colouring in pencils wherever he goes. Social shame aside, the drawings that flow onto the pages despite bringing into question DJWโ€™s mental state, are phenomenal. We have decided to start sharing with you some of the raw concepts that emerge from the bent and twisted mind of this artist... Buckle up and enjoy.

He is at Kirra Cultural Centre until 4pm today and from 10am-2pm on Sunday.
