ARTWORK INSPIRATION

Every Child is one of the most famous pictorial series by the artist René Mäkelä. It is so applauded internationally that, In a chain of unlikely coincidences, he came to 'unite' the artist Madonna, three times excommunicated by the Church, with Pope Francis. As? That's how it went:

René Mäkelä had already made his Every Child is an Artist of Dalí as a child when, one morning, he received an email: Good morning. We write to you from Madonna's office. The singer wants you to be one of the artists who decorate several murals for her Raising Malawi foundation. Sincerely. A few days later, and after verifying that it was not a fake email of dubious origin, Mäkelä was already painting the enormous murals of the Malawi orphanage precisely with the Every Child concept that the Queen of Pop meticulously supervised.

A little Jean Michel-Basquiat with the phrase Every Child is an Artist and an infant Martin Luther King with the phrase Every Child Has a Dream has presided over the walls of that magical place ever since.

After that famous action, and in one of the interviews that the artist usually gives, he was asked what would be next after painting for so many sports stars and for Madonna. Mäkelä, laughing, answered: "after Madonna... I don't know, the Pope" . No sooner said than done. A few months later, the Pope Francis Scholas Occurrentes Foundation called René to auction one of his paintings at the UN headquarters in New York to benefit the foundation that helps the most disadvantaged children. So he did. As a thank you Pope Francis received René in a private audience and he took as a souvenir a reproduction of one of his most famous Every Child.

This 'union' between Madonna and the Pope could be tangential if it were not for the fact that, some time later, René, with direct contacts with both personalities, was called again to put them in contact and work the miracle of uniting the artist and the Pope . That meeting has not yet taken place in person... that we officially know. What is certain is that this historical connection starts from a canvas, from a brush of a Mallorcan artist who one day devised an unparalleled pictorial series that captivated both of them equally.
