The paintings featured in this auction were created by children suffering from oncology disorders during the art therapy workshops of the P.A.V.E.L. Association. These workshops are held by art therapist dr. Mihaela Șchiopu within the onco-pediatric section of the "Alexandru Trestioreanu" Oncology Institute, Bucharest.
P.A.V.E.L. is a non-governmental organization founded on May 10 1996 by parents whose children suffer from cancer, leukemia and severe anemia. Its mission is to improve the lives of children and young people who suffer from these conditions by offering them moral, informational, psychologic, social and material support.
These children forget about their problems when they paint. They enjoy every moment as if they were on holiday. Every time, they wait feverishly for the workshop to start. The funds obtained from this auction will be dedicated to them, so that they can benefit from a wide range of media when they create. Moreover, a part of these funds will be given to a pupil from a Romanian high school of art. Last November, Andreea had an individual exhibition that featured the works she had created over the year in the hospital where she is still a patient.
