Troye Sivan Auctions Off Three Original Paintings for Charity

Here's your chance to bring a piece of the actor and pop star home with you.

Pop star Troye Sivan has created three original paintings to be auctioned off via eBay through November 17. The works—entitled Blue Sky, Animal, and Abstract—were made at the behest of Pandora and are inspired by the sounds from his most recent album, Bloom.

The money raised from the sale will benefit The Ally Coalition, a group founded by the band Fun (Jack Antonoff, Nate Ruess, and Andrew Dost) and fashion designer Rachel Antonoff to provide critical support for organizations who are dedicated to bettering the lives of queer youth and raise awareness about inequalities that face the LGBTQ population.

Currently on tour in support of Bloom, Sivan also stars alongside Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe in the film Boy Erased, in theaters now. The film tells the story of Jared, the son of a small-town Baptist pastor, outed to his parents at age 19. He’s soon faced with an ultimatum: Attend a gay conversion therapy program or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith.

At the time of publishing, auction bids for the works range from $710 to $1,325.
