About Anup Bhandari
"The Healing Art Project has been an eye-opening experience for me as an artist, inspiring my personal Faces of Newgate portraiture project. I came to see each person at the mission as a creator whose spirit I wanted to capture on canvas. Even those who don't make art create a shared sense of belonging at the mission. They build genuine, joyful relationships there despite all they've been through.
I hope this book brings homelessness into our awareness and stands as a testament to our shared humanity."
