AN impressive 287 artists from Dublin are among the Who’s Who of Irish and international talents taking part in this year’s Incognito online art sale in aid of the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
The Incognito art collection is now live at www.incognito.ie with the online art sale taking place on Thursday April 22 at 10am sharp.
Unlike any other art sale, the identity of the artists behind the paintings – for sale at €60 each – is kept top secret until the sale has closed.
The Incognito collection is made up of 3,000-plus original postcard-sized artworks in a range of mediums, from oils and pastels, to glass and metalwork, in a sale that is usually a sprint to the checkout. Everything sold out last year in just 15 minutes!
Among the Dublin artists taking part are Maser, Guggi, Mo Kelly, Ed Miliano, Jules Coll, Duda and Bridget Flinn. U2’s The Edge, Bob Geldof and fashion designer Paul Costelloe have also donated artwork.
In the five years since its inception, Incognito has raised almost €450,000 for Jack & Jill’s home nursing care for children with highly complex medical conditions, including end-of-life care.
