Pei Xiang, a recent year 12 graduate, has donated her award-winning artwork entitled “Shut Down” to Greyhound Rescue. All proceeds go to Greyhound Rescue to help rescue and rehabilitate more greyhounds and find them their forever homes.
Pei said: "my work endeavours to convey the repetitive cycle, impact, and abusive culture of greyhound racing. My artwork is dedicated to the greyhounds that are killed in Australia every year and the volunteers who work tirelessly to save their lives”.
Pei is a long-time supporter of Greyhound Rescue. When Premier Mike Baird reversed his decision to ban greyhound racing in 2016, she raised $400 for Greyhound Rescue in lieu of presents for her 13th birthday.
Greyhound Rescue's President, Nat Panzarino, said: "Not only is Pei's work beautiful, it is inspiring to see young people caring so passionately about a cause that is meaningful to them. Her commitment to helping hounds in creative and innovative ways, and using her talents to highlight this important cause is inspiring."
Pei's talent is not limited to visual arts. She is currently studying Engineering and Medical Science at the University of Technology, Sydney. She is a truly exceptional young woman and an avid lover of greyhounds, including her own special rescue hound, Rick.
