Nathan Wyburn Exhibition – Cardiff, April

On April 28th, Kin + Ilk, Nathan Wyburn and Gofal Cymru joined forces to raise awareness of mental health. Pop culture artist Nathan undertook a week-long residency at Kin + Ilk in Pontcanna, creating portraits using specially imported coffee. He painted famous faces such as Michael Sheen, Shakin’ Stevens and Derek Brockway – all of whom met up with Nathan and signed his artwork. The evening was a busy one! Nathan’s portraits were auctioned off, with all proceeds going to Gofal Cymru, a mental health charity devoted to supporting the mentally ill. Various people that have received help from Gofal took to the microphone, and it was heartwarming to see firsthand the drastic measures Gofal have undertaken over the years to increase public understanding of mental health.
