Ever fancied owning a self portrait by Adele, Sir Cliff Richard, Tracey Emin or The Wanted?
As Face Britain reaches its climax we have two amazing auctions coming up allowing you to bid for an exclusive self-portrait created by one of our famous Face Britain supporters.
Celebrated artists and a number of celebrities from the world of music, TV and sport, have created self portraits for Face Britain to raise funds for the work of The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts. You can see the portraits in our online gallery.
Face Britain has been developed to give all children and young people aged 4-16 years throughout the UK the opportunity to create self portraits encouraging them to explore their creativity and to consider their own identity and place in history as part of the 2012 generation.
The wide variety of celebrity and sporting self portraits including those by Fearne Cotton, Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, Sir Geoff Hurst, Nick Park, The Wanted and a host of other famous names, will be auctioned on eBay between 3-13 May 2012.
Self portraits and donated artwork by established artists including Maggi Hambling and Tracey Emin will be auctioned at a live event at Christie’s, King Street, London on 9 May 2012.
View our online gallery of auction portraits and see if you are interested in bidding on any.
