Spark - NFTs to support deafblindess by Ava Jolliffe
Spark is one of the first NFT collections of its kind – a 250-piece profile picture collection to spread awareness about deafblindness, a condition that over 400,000 people suffer with in the UK alone. Where other NFT collections donate token amounts to good causes, Fungii Studios launches this collection with the majority of proceeds from the sale and resale donated to Deafblind UK, and into the hands of the people suffering from deafblindness.
The Spark Story
Ava Jolliffe is a young award winning Deafblind artist working in digital media.
Already her artworks have been showcased in two solo exhibitions, in addition to her production of commissioned work, working with multiple charities to promote their cause and having been highlighted in various media for her advocacy & artistic talent, most recently she has been seen on the BBC in ‘Britains best young artist’.
From a very early age, Ava showed a real aptitude for drawing and her creativity and skill was a delight to see.
Unfortunately, Ava became seriously ill when she was 3 years old with a rare degenerative condition leaving her profoundly deaf, severely sight impaired and a wheelchair user. This made her art all the more important to her as a tool for communication and expression as she navigated severe multi sensory loss.
Ava is passionate about showcasing the abilities of deaf/blind artists such as herself and is a keen advocate for her disabled artist peers, striving to challenge the stereotypes of disability and promote equality for all.
Ava aspires to be a recognisable force for artist equality and disability advocacy. She wants to use her her talent in a positive direction and also help promote a better understanding of the deafblind community.
