Local print startup features Artists First STL
Passion Incarnate sells art prints and apparel designed by a team of St. Louis artists with the goal of giving back to the community. The project is organized and run by Lucky Almazar, a photographer and videographer.
The first prints will be available in May with 20% of all purchases going back to Artists First. Passion Incarnate will continue to donate to Artists First through June, July, and August giving back 10% of all purchases to Artists First.
Through the sale of each item, a donation is made to an organization supporting either arts education or the accessibility of art to undeserved populations, such as individuals struggling with homeless or living with a disability.
“Art is a source of inspiration, motivation, self-discovery, not only for the artist but for the observer as well. It is with this thought in mind that the company began; the deep appreciation for art and wanting to help those in need.” - Lucky
Passion Incarnate has chosen to feature Artists First STL as their first organization to sponsor.
