Heart Research UK has launched a creative art fundraising campaign in collaboration with well-known celebrities and artists from all around the world. 

 

The ‘Anonymous heART Project’ 2019 will display over 400 original A5 pieces of artwork from the acclaimed individuals on eBay between the 4th-13th October. 

 

But the online auction will have a surprising twist.  

 

The artist of each piece will be kept anonymous until the auction is over. 

 

It poses the question: can you recognise your favourite artist’s masterpiece? But most importantly will you be able to bag it for a bargain price? 

 

 Some of the participants from the globe’s entertainment and arts industry include: 

  • Alan Titchmarsh, famous English gardening journalist, poet and novelist 

  • Robert Smith from the music group The Cure 

  • The award-winning acres Zoe Wanamaker CBE 

  • British comedian Vic Reeves 

  • Miriam Margolyes better known amongst all the Harry Potter’s lovers as Professor Sprout 

  • Welsh illustrator Ralph Steadman 

  • English stand-up comedian Keith Lemon 

 

Kate Bratt-Farrar, Chief Executive of Heart Research UK said the quantity and quality of the artwork the charity received has been “astounding.” 

 

She explained the charity is aiming to raise funds this year in a “fun and interesting way”. 

 

Ms Bratt-Farrar said: “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.” 

 

The campaign hopes to raise money for Heart Research UK’s vital medical research into the prevention and cure of heart disease. This year the project allows funders to also “get a little something back” said Ms Bratt-Farrar.
