Bidding opens on Tuesday, October 30 for the fifth annual Art on a Postcard secret auction. A unique opportunity to take home a specially created artwork by some of the world’s most coveted artists, you could be bidding on a rare piece by Marina Abramović or an artwork by Amy May George, a talented Central Saint Martin’s student with a sell-out show under her belt. A truly democratic platform, with the reserve price for all artworks starting at £50, this is an opportunity to own a valuable and collectable work of art on a 10x15 cm scale.

This year's line up includes Marina Abramović, who makes her Art on a Postcard debut, plus Humphrey Ocean RA, Maggi Hambling CBE, Golucho, Volker Hueller, Rob and Nick Carter, Martin Yeoman, Minas Halaj, Vanessa Jackson RA, Rebecca Salter RA and Maria Kreyn

Bidding on the Paddle8 website includes lots by some of the most successful and interesting contemporary artists from both the urban art and fine art world. It features artists from prestigious galleries including Blum & Poe, Timothy Taylor, Victoria Miro, Blain | Southern, Lazinc and White Cube.  Art on a Postcard presents a unique chance to own a mini-masterpiece by an artist who would not normally be accessible to most. 

Art on a Postcard is working in partnership with the auction host ​Paddle8 ​and communal working hub ​WeWork, the space and services provider that fosters collaboration who will host the week-long Art on a Postcard exhibition in their newest location in ​Devonshire Square, London EC2​.

All of the work is anonymous until after the sale which will be held on the Paddle8 auction site. Putting the artist to the image has always been half the fun of Art on a Postcard and fans and budding collectors can visit the Paddle8 website to start bidding on these unique works of art. 

The work can now be viewed at
