Selected charity -organisations are from areas supporting and helping science, nature, free-thinking, atheism and human rights.
Alander (born in 1979), is best known for his work as a graphic designer, an educator and working with digital art. His abstract style and spectrum of art hails influences from early times of modernism, secular ideology and even his passion for hard rock and heavy metal music. Abstract forms and many details can be seen in his works as geometrical visual punch lines such as triangles, elliptical objects and twirls.
The idea of “seculARTism” is to sell artworks around the world from PeteAlander.com page and give 15% profit to a selected charity of each sold piece of art.
