The Detroit artist creates paintings to raise money for restaurants



(WXYZ) – An acclaimed artist in the Detroit area is making a difference to restaurant workers.

Tony Roko set up the Restaurant Relief Fund to help people in the hospitality industry recover from the financial consequences of the pandemic.

This is how it works. Roko created a series of paintings inspired by some of his favorite restaurants, bartenders and chefs.

The paintings are on display and the prints are sold in restaurants such as Gray Ghost, SheWolf, Apparatus Room, and Karl’s.

To buy one, all you have to do is scan the QR code on the display and you will be taken to the Art of Roko online shop to complete your purchase.

A portion of each sale goes direct to the restaurant staff at the facility where you found the painting.

With the purchase you will receive a signed, limited edition piece of art.
