This is a guest post from @malsheep56, who took the time to highlight some of their most loved items from the #TezQuakeAid event.
A Glass House
Miray Kurtuluş is a musician and visual artist who crafts intricate collages. This animated collage is accompanied by beautifully haunting melodic audio which explores the weight of the situation in the affected regions, the systemic neglect of infrastructure, and the meaning of home and what that means for individuals in a community.

Erwin Cruz, also known as CRUZZER, is a digital painter who explores figure fundamentals with a reduced palette range with traditional techniques. The interplay between light and shadow in this piece enhances the depth of form, and the brush textures surrounding the figure contrast the smooth and airy quality of the face. This piece is available as an edition of 15 for 20 XTZ, with 100% of the proceeds going to the fundraising contract.
Düzen is an audiovisual artist whose monochromatic 3D artworks explore form, space, displacement, light and shadow. Accompanied by audio, the light orb shifts and affects the pillar form, playing with negative space. This piece is available as an edition of 100 for 3 XTZ, with 100% of the proceeds going to the fundraising contract.
Safe With Me
Karina Theo is an AI artist and digital painter who creates works which study fashion and fantasy figures with muted palettes.

Marina Trushnikova is a watercolor artist and Argentine Tango dancer whose recent works focus on minimal palette portrait explorations.

Sedefkar Mehmed Agha

Natalie Luisa, also known as NLTDigitalArt is an experimental multidisciplinary creative who has utilized emojis as a medium to create this fundraising piece.

This piece is available as an edition of 100 for 1.5 XTZ, with 100% of the proceeds going to the fundraising contract.
