Puzzles with Purpose

          

Puzzles with Purpose was conceived as an international initiative to help artists during the global pandemic COVID19. Expanding our horizons, we invited and reached out to international artists from all around the world in order to shine a light on their studio practice and create a unique one-of-a-kind Collector Edition Jigsaw Puzzle. We look to support each contemporary artist with their studio practice, creative endeavors, supporting exhibitions and more.

Creatives are essential to our world, and during this crisis essentially require endorsement and aid to continue their creative pursuits. Puzzles with Purpose works together with artists to create unique jigsaw puzzles in multiple materials including different types of wood, magnetic and traditional premium paper. To create amazing Collector's Editions we are using the newest technologies available from top die-cutting capabilities which support craft makers, and continue back small businesses. The use of exclusive AI technology has produced one-of-kind jigsaw puzzle shapes with premium laser cut images, unique puzzles with amazing gentle magnetic capabilities and gorgeous reproduction of color. The international contemporary artists chosen for this project continue to inspire us to produce more jigsaw puzzles in the future for the world to enjoy.

Artists' Charity Choice provides every artist with the ability to select a charity pick for donations. A percentage of proceeds from the artist's Collector Edition Jigsaw puzzle will be donated according to their selections. Some artists are donating their complete profits to COVID19 Relief efforts and nonprofit organizations of choice and others choose to retain to sustain their studios. AXP donates a percentage on every sale and continues to support our Artist Charity Choices around the the globe.
