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 2025.
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, Grayson Perry CBE, RA, Marina Abramoviç, Harland Miller, Martin Parr, Es Devlin, Jeremy Deller, Peter Blake, Gilbert and George, Wolfgang Tillmans, Marc Quinn and Cicely Brown.
We are now several auctions in and have a number of outstanding events under our belts including partnerships with The Other Art Fair and Photo London and a themed urban art postcard auction curated by Ben Eine at Spitalfields Market in London as well our annual outings with Art Car Boot Fair.
In addition to the auctions we have a burgeoning print shop and have released a number of sell out print editions including Hate’s Outta Date by Harland Miller.
Secret Postcard Auctions
All of the artworks are available to view while the auction in running, bidding takes place on line. We partner with New York based auction house Paddle8 who are leaders in the field of 21st Century and Post War art.
A list of the contributors’ names is circulated before the sale and the works remain anonymous until the auction has ended. Our auctions have raised over three quarter of a million pounds to date.
