The Blue Art Foundation auction was held on the SAMPLE website in the spring of 2020.

The Blueprint launched a series of initiatives to support artists, designers and musicians. First of them is the Blue Art Foundation auction organized together with Sample.

In works selected by The Blueprint team – Marina Antsiperova, Aleksandr Blanar and Sasha Mademuaselle – there are love and warmth the team wishes to share with everyone. The works have a lot of tenderness and attention – be it to a naked body, or to those not always ideal circumstances of life. The inner empire of each artist and photographer is close to our vision of the world. Each of them is our hero and our author, who determine how The Blueprint looks in the eyes of our readers.
