Grab some art and help some hearts – Our new art inspired fundraising campaign where YOU can bag a piece of original celebrity art

28 September, 2018

The ‘anonymous heART project is live!’ Bid on eBay – https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/heartresearchuk_shop

Heart Research UK’s ‘anonymous heART’ project will see hundreds of unique, original pieces of artwork be created on A5 postcards by international artists, designers and celebrities.  These will go up for auction on eBay, giving you the chance to own a piece of history, whilst supporting vital medical research.

The anonymous heART project will see some of the biggest names across politics, entertainment and the arts, such as Nicola Sturgeon, Jo Brand, Nick Cave and Gillian Anderson, create one-of-a-kind pieces which will go up for auction on eBay between Friday 2 November and Sunday 11 November, making the perfect unique Christmas present this year.

The twist?  Though the list of artists will be available to all bidders, the artist of each individual piece will be kept anonymous, only being revealed after the auction is over.  Could you bag yourself an original masterpiece for a bargain price?

With 500 pieces of one-of-a-kind artwork expected from contributors across the globe, there’s a piece of art for everyone, and all the money raised will fund Heart Research UK’s pioneering medical research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease.

Barbara Harpham, Chief Executive of Heart Research UK, said: “The anonymous heART project is one of the most exciting campaigns we’ve ever run.  The quantity and quality of the artwork that we have received from artists, designers and celebrities all over the world has been astounding.

“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 ground-breaking medical research, helping us benefit patients as soon as possible.”
