Ed Sheeran to sell abstract artwork for charity auction
Ed Sheeran, who once said he paints for his own enjoyment, is donating one of his paintings for a good cause as part of a charity auction. This is the first and only time his art has been made available for sale.
He donated the artwork, which he titled “Dab 2 2020”, to the Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk Legacy auction, to raise money for children and young people in need.
The title comes from a nickname Sheeran has had for his father since childhood.
He said he “painted a canvas a day for 30 days”, adding that it was really fun.
“It’s something that makes me happy; that no one else needs to judge. There’s no part of the creative process that people judge, if you’re just doing it for yourself.”
