One World~One Heart

Artist Burton Morris gained recognition with his distinctive style portraying everyday objects and recreating them into pop culture icons. His bold black lines, filled with bright solid color is reminiscent of comic book style.



Morris' artwork first gained national attention when it was chosen to hang in the coffee shop set of the hit TV series "Friends". His artwork has gone on the to be selected for such prestigious events as the 76th Academy Awards, 2004 Summer Olympics, 2006 Major League Baseball All Star game and


Life Through Art Foundation, RED Party!


Burton donated his art for the invitations but also donated this well known "Popcorn" print on canvas in black and white. LTAF staff took it to the kids in the LA inner city where the children painted half the canvas. They then trekked the canvases off to the stars who completed them. The finale was a collaborative piece of art painted and signed by such actors as Brooke Shields, Dakota Fanning and the kids.




For One World~ One Heart, LTAF would like to give away printed tees with this incredible silk screened art icon Burton Morris has done for
Life Through Art Foundation.

Leave a comment and this "art bug" printed in red on a white Tee could be yours! Drawing February 12th.
