The team behind Art on a Postcard is working alongside artist Mick Rooney RA on an audio-visual project, Art on a Ukulele. Inspired by Mick’s beautifully painted ukulele in the 2016 RA Summer Exhibition, together they will be curating an orchestra of ukuleles, all painted by well known and loved artists.

Pete Howlett, the UK’s foremost independent ukulele producer and the sole manufacturer for the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain (UOGB), has handcrafted a suite of ukuleles to be painted and then played by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. Each ukulele has been given to artists including Mick Rooney RA, Ramiro Fernandez Suas (pictured), Cathy Pilkingon RA, Norman Ackroyd RA, Bill Jacklin RA, Anne Desmett RA, Allen Jones RA, Charlie Calder-Potts, David Inshaw RA and many more to paint in their own styles. 

All money raised goes to The Hepaitis C Trust
