Art on a Postcard (AOAP) raises money for The Hepatitis C Trust towards its campaign to eliminate hepatitis C in the UK by the year 2030.
In 2014 Art on a Postcard was intended to be a one off secret postcard auction, but it went so well it has spawned a small industry. Artists and photographers who have taken part in our auctions include Damien Hirst, Gavin Turk, Marc Quinn, Gilbert and George, Peter Blake RA, Hurvin Anderson, Grayson Perry RA, Larry Clark, Martin Parr, Michael Craig Martin RA, Chantal Joffe RA, Joan Snyder, Claudette Johnson, Mali Morris RA, Genieve Figgis, Vanessa Jackson RA, Rebecca Salter RA, Anne Desmet RA, Catherine Opie, Wolfgang Tillmans, Paula Rego, Julian Opie, Hassan Hajajj, Cecily Brown, Harland Miller, Marina Abramović, Florine Démosthène, Lubaina Himid and Jeremy Deller.
Almost a decade later, we have a number of outstanding events under our belts including partnerships with The Other Art Fair and Photo London as well our annual outings with Art Car Boot Fair. Our work has also won us awards for our innovative fundraising initiatives.
In addition to our auctions we have a print shop which includes a catalogue of contemporary art prints a number of sell out print editions including Hate’s Outta Date by Harland Miller.
All of the artworks are available to view on our website while the auction in running, bidding takes place online.
The auctions are curated and by invite only. All of the artists make their living entirely from the sale of their art. Our auctions have raised over three quarter of a million pounds to date.
