Article from The Healing Power of Art & Artists

Agnes Jorgensen and Andre Chatelain
Agnes Jorgensen and Andre Chatelain

Agnes Jorgensen and Andre Chatelain are extraordinary artists who have received many accolades for heir masterful paintings in realism. They are award-winning members of The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS. The dynamic married couple share a deeply felt humanitarian spirit, a passion for Africa and its people, and have combined their talents to create Painting A New World. The genesis of their non-profit organization began on Andre Chatelain’s first trip to Kenya and Tanzania in 2001. He states, “I was profoundly moved by the African people, their beauty, grace, dignity, pride and so much more. It was this experience that inspired me to paint the people and their culture trying to capture the essence of their being. Fortunately, my travels took me also to Mali and Mauritania further inspiring my artwork.”

In 2008, Agnes accompanied Andre to Kenya where she also fell in love with this continent and its people. That year they founded Painting A New World (PNMW). One of their many proudest achievements is the sale of one auctioned mural in Kenya generated sufficient funds ($15,000 ) to provide a community with a new school and a well of clean water.

In this interview, they share their passion and explain how their organization Painting A New World is making a positive difference in the world. We are proud to know Agnes and Andre and to include them among our ongoing series titled “World Changers”...
