RCA Secret is an exhibition and sale of original postcard-sized artworks, by invited internationally acclaimed artists plus up-and coming graduates from the Royal College of Art. It's your chance to get your hands on original works of art for a tiny price.
This year's event contained 2700 works by 1034 artists. Yinka Shonibare, Paula Rego, John Baldessari, David Bailey, Christo, Paula Rego, Frank Bowling and Julian Opie all made special works for us, as well as architect Zaha Hadid, fashion designers Christopher Bailey, Manolo Blahnik and Paul Smith, and Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park. You can view all of the pieces, and the names of their makers by clicking here.
Ever wondered if you could spot a Paula Rego at 20 paces? How about a David Bailey? Each postcard in RCA Secret is signed only on the back, so collectors don¹t know the identity of the artists until they have made their purchases. We display the eclectic collection of postcards in a week-long exhibition and then for one day only the cards are sold to support the RCA Fine Art Student Award Fund.
With generous contributions of new work from hundreds of artists and designers, RCA Secret continues to help emerging artists at a formative stage in their careers.
