Alan Fears has been selected to take part in this years 2022 50 x £50 auction. ‘It’s All Downhill From Here’ is the painting that he has created.
’50 x £50 is a curated fine art auction of 50 paintings each with a starting price of £50.
In a move to open up art collecting to more people regardless of their background or financial situation, The Auction Collective (@theauctioncollective) asked 50 artists if they would create a single artwork that could be sold far below their standard asking price in an exceptional one-of-a-kind auction.
Teaming up with The Artist’s Surfaces Company (@tasc_london), each artist was then sent a 24 x 30 cm canvas to work with and this is my final result.
‘50 x £50’ is a very unique opportunity to buy high quality artwork, from some of the most talented artists working today, well below the artist’s market value.’
Auction runs 2nd Nov – 23rd November
