The Hudson Foundation was set up with the intention to give back to society, helping to ‘Give a Voice to the Voiceless’, to support Abandoned Dogs, Children and Mother Earth.
To celebrate its inception, the foundation organised ‘LEGENDS’, a collection of contemporary works by Hudson Founder and Chairman Alfie Borg, depicting all time legends from the world of art, sport, music, film and social history. The collection includes personalities such as Jesus Christ, Michael Jordan, Charlie Chaplin, Quentin Tarantino, Muhammed Ali, Bruce Lee, Stan Lee, Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, Queen Elizabeth II, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, and more. The personalities have inspired Alfie in different stages of his life. Collectively, these characters have endured hardships, yet fought through ambition, strength of mind and dedication to gain global success.
The works feature mixed media, with some including embellishments relevant to the subject matter, which are also available as limited prints. Brimming with emotions, each thought-provoking art piece communicates its own unique story, a story that takes weeks to put together until it is finally completed.
The exhibition takes place at Kettles Café until 9th December 2022. 100% of the proceeds from the sales of the art pieces and prints will go towards the foundation.
The foundation has already provided restoration works as well as an emergency room for Noah’s Ark in Mellieha, sponsored medical expenses as well as provided cleaning material for the Association for Abandoned Animals Malta in Birzebbugia. The foundation is now seeking to continue its work in supporting animals and disadvantaged children as well as to carry initiatives to help the environment.
