National charity Heart Research UK has launched the anonymous heART project, a fundraising campaign featuring artwork designed by a host of internationally-acclaimed and world-renowned artists, all available for bidding on eBay.
Over 400 pieces of unique A5 artwork have been designed, including one-of-a-kind pieces from artists including John Wragg RA, Jan Wurm, Paul Insect, Pure Evil, Ralph Steadman, Nick Sharratt, Hayden Kays, Stephen Whatcott and Ray Richardson.
These highly renowned and trend-setting artists have donated their time and exceptional talent to make the anonymous heART auction distinctly unique.
The twist? Though the list of contributors will be available to all bidders, the artist of each piece will be kept anonymous until after the auction is over. You’ll have to rely on your keen artistic eye if you want to walk away with a masterpiece for a bargain price.
The artwork is all currently live on eBay until the 13th October 2019. You can bid on all the pieces at heartresearch.org.uk/heart-auction.
Kate Bratt-Farrar, Chief Executive of Heart Research UK, said: “The anonymous heART project is one of the most exciting campaigns Heart Research UK has ever run. The quantity and quality of the artwork that we have received from artists, designers and celebrities all over the world have been astounding.
“At Heart Research UK, we’re always looking for fun and interesting ways to raise money. The anonymous heART project allows people to support groundbreaking medical research but also get a little something back, owning their own mini-masterpiece created by an artist or celeb.
“What makes this project so special is that everyone has the chance to own a piece of iconic art; it really is making high-class art available to all.
“All of the money we raise will help us continue our pioneering medical research, helping us benefit patients as soon as possible.”
