Award-winning American contemporary painter, photographer and mixed media artist Andrea Bonfils has created a unique “Encaustic” work of art by taking an original photograph taken by Unite Founder & Director Anne Wells and adding to it melted beeswax, resin and other natural materials. Andrea has very generously donated this piece to Unite for our fundraising efforts. Andrea’s work is represented by galleries in New Mexico, Connecticut, South Carolina and in the Bruce Lurie Gallery in Los Angeles, is in corporate and private collections worldwide and can be seen at www.andreaartstudio.com.  

The cost for the elephant encaustic above is $1,500.
100% will be donated to Unite The World With Africa Foundation
by artist Andrea Bonfils. 

My work is inspired by the beauty of our world, and with this elephant photograph I haveI literally encased it in the natural material of beeswax (also known as encaustic painting). Whether one is working to protect land or a human or animal life, we must stand UNITED in this fight to save our planet Earth.
