Last week, the Saatchi Gallery welcomed a stylish crowd to the launch of British artist Sacha Jafri’s retrospective, Universal Consciousness. After enjoying a glass of Champagne Taittinger’s classic Brut Cuvee NV, guests bid on Jafri’s artwork raising almost £1m for the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together charity.
Born in 1977, Jafri specialises in painting ‘magical realism’ and has been awarded Young Artist of the Year twice. The retrospective showcased his 18 years of work and he is believed to be the youngest artist to have a retrospective exhibition.
Comments Lynn Murray, Marketing Director of Hatch Mansfield, sole UK agent for Champagne Taittinger, “Champagne Taittinger has always been a keen supporter of the arts and we are proud to have been part of this special event which raised money for such a great cause.”
