RCA Secret – All Is Revealed
Yoko Ono’s was a face without a mouth
Tracey Emin’s was a woman sitting at a table
Grayson Perry’s was a biker dressed in pink
Nick Park’s was a saucy poodle
Paul Smith’s was a man’s brogue shoe
These are just a few of the postcards donated to the RCA Secret art sale that took place on Saturday 22 November, at the Royal College of Art in London.
Hundreds of art fans queued in the freezing November weather, some camping out on Friday night to be in with a chance of owning an original piece of art for just £40.
Nearly all of the 2,700 postcards were sold, raising over £100,000 for the RCA Fine Art student Fund which helps support students with bursaries and funding.
Over 1,000 artists donated postcards including some of the world’s top artists and designers: Paula Rego, Anish Kapoor, David Bailey, shoe designer Manolo Blahnik and ex-Clash member Paul Simonon, to name only a few.
