LOVE NOW! by TOSHY
In a world of refugees, homeless, loneliness, hunger, cold, fear, violence, abuse, torment, disrespect, discrimination, hate and disbelief we can and have to help with money and goods. But help can also come from the heart. Pay attention, affection and involvement to people who need it. More attention to you family, friends, the unknown. Connect to each other again, it’s easy and it only costs an action. Money can’t buy you love but love can make a big difference. Love now! Make a start!
Dutch artist Toshy travels the world and shares the “Love Now!” message with his art. Not only in international galleries but also in public places, on fashion, walls and canvas. November 2015 Toshy went to Berlin and shared his artworks with passengers, in December he did the same in Amsterdam. He painted the message on walls in cities like Barcelona and London and sent many artworks to strangers all over the world.

How did your collaboration with Intertrade come about?
Having worked with an Intertrade team member in the past on some international artistic projects, I was invited by the company to submit an artistic proposal for their Fragranze installation. Fragrance is Who You Are was born quite naturally actually, as it was so clear to me from the start that fragrance and scents are remarkably strong forces of individuality. As an artist, I am particularly aware of individuality. Every inspiration is individual, every message is its own. Fragrance is similar in that sense.
