John Dyer is supporting animal charity 'Born Free' with two limited edition prints donated to their online auction to raise funds for orangutans. Founded in 1984, the charity works tirelessly to ensure that all wild animals, whether living in captivity or in the wild, are treated with compassion and respect. Funds raised from the auction will go to support the Orangutan Foundation and the vital work with orangutans in Borneo.
In September 2019 John Dyer was the artist in residence for the Orangutan Foundation with the Born Free Foundation on the island of Borneo as part of his Last Chance to Paint project. Painting with special permission in the rainforest of Borneo was a unique experience and resulted in a series of important new original paintings focusing in orangutans.

The auction ends on 31st July 2020.
