The Hepatitis C Trust’s Art on a Postcard is back for its second year at Moniker with postcards and customised car bonnets. The Postcard Lottery was a huge hit at last year’s Moniker Art Fair and sold out before the end. The lottery gives visitors the chance to own an original artwork by one of the many world renowned artists involved. By purchasing a £50 lottery ticket you are guaranteed to win a postcard size work of art from the likes of Paul Insect, Pure Evil, Eelus, Harland Miller, Peter Blake, Ally McIntyre, Brad Downey, Zsofia Schweger, and Rugman.
On the Art on a Postcard stand there will also be customised car bonnets by Jake and Dinos Chapman and Bob and Roberta Smith. Five hundred £25 lottery tickets will be made available for the chance to own one of these unique works of art, giving the lottery ticket holders a one in two hundred and fifty chance of owning artwork by major British contemporary artist.
Launched in 2014, Art on a Postcard raises money for the Hepatitis C Trust. To date it has garnered the support of more than 700 artists including David Shrigley, Damian Hirst, Grayson Perry as well as urban art from Xenz, Ben Eine, Hush and Pure Evil, all of whom have created tiny, original works exclusively for The Trust.
Gemma Peppé, Director of Art on a Postcard says “Using art as a vehicle to raise awareness can be very powerful. By joining forces with Moniker we can reach a demographic who otherwise may never engage with the charity and save lives as a result.”
Tickets for the Bonnet Lottery will be available online at www.artonapostcard.com now, or in person from Moniker Art Fair.
