Art on a Postcard was intended to be a one-off Secret Postcard Auction in 2014, it went so well that’s we’ve spawned a small industry from it. We’ve not only had several other Secret Auctions since and we now also have its sister Photography on a Postcard which has become the official charity of Photo London.
Artists such as Damien Hirst, Gavin Turk, Gilbert and George, Peter Blake, Grayson Perry, Michael Craig Martin, Cecily Brown, Sam Taylor Johnson, Jake and Dinos Chapman, David Shrigley, Julian Opie, Chantal Joffe RA, Martin Yeoman, Amy Feldman, Rebecca Salter RA have taken part in our Secret Auction. Photography on a Postcard has just as many illustrious names involved from the photography world such as Dougie Wallace, Wofgang Tillmans, Karen Knorr, Alison Jackson and Martin Parr.
In 2017 we collaborated with Mick Rooney RA to produce Art on a Ukulele which saw 28 ukuleles decorated by Allen Jones RA, Norman Ackroyd RA, Anne Desmett RA and Mick Rooney himself among others go up for action. The pinnacle of the project was The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain performing a gig with the ukuleles at The Jazz Café and being joined on stage by Channel Four’s Jon Snow who sang a rendition of The Beatle’s Hey Jude.
