Titled “One Voice”, this breathtaking painting was a collaboration between Dread, Pras Michel of the Fugees, and the Haitian American actress and philanthropist Claudine Oriol to raise money for humanitarian causes on the island nation of Haiti. “I made this painting and traveled for over a year all over the United States collecting signatures as an homage to Oprah Winfrey. Her dedication to helping children around the world and raising over $72 million for her Angel Network has always inspired me,” says Jeffery Dread.

Pop Artist Jeffery painted portraits of Lionel Richie, P. Diddy Sean Combs, Paris Hilton, Diana Ross, Bono. As an artist and philanthropist, he was commissioned by The Kennedy Family to paint a Robert Kennedy’s portrait which raised funds for his foundation. The White House also commissioned Jeffery to paint a portrait of President George W. Bush which will be displayed in his library.

A percentage of the consignors proceeds from the sale of this exquisite painting will benefit the non-profit organization Innovating Health International which is dedicated in treating cancer and women’s health issues in Haiti and Malawi.  

The painting measures 30 x 30 inches and is stretched canvas over a wooden frame. It shows Oprah’s portrait in a vivid green and pink color scheme.

The signatures have been written throughout this vibrant painting in black and silver marker. This historic item comes with a LOA from Steve Grad of Beckett Authentication Services (A07979).
