The Cure's Robert Smith is having some artwork put up for auction, all for charity


The Cure’s Robert Smith, it turns out, is a dab hand when it comes to art. The singer submitted his arty postcard as part of The anonymous heART project and was exhibited and will now go up for auction all in aid of the Run by Heart Research UK charity.

Robert Smith is contributing as part of a wide range of talents and celebrities from the arts community and beyond, who have all designed their own arty A5 postcard. They were all put on exhibition yesterday as part of The anonymous heART project’s annual event. With the charity managing to make £43,000 for the good cause of preventing and treating heart disease, this year’s event in Leeds was highly sought after.

No wonder, too, as alongside Robert Smith there has also been art submitted by Kurupt FM’s Steve Stamp, cartoonist Ralph Steadman, and celebrity personality Keith Lemon.

The full list of contributors is available but the exhibition yesterday was sure to keep all the postcards kept anonymous until the bidding in the auction is closed and the artist’s name is revealed.

The postcards are now all on eBay where the sales will finally end on Sunday, October 13th, and you can find all the anonymous contributions to the heART project and even bid on your favourites for a good cause, right here.
