Incognito was curated by Lucinda Hall in 2017 – the concept that art could be more accessible and affordable to the public, whilst raising vital funds for The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.
For 3 years, Incognito has seen queues of hundreds of excited art buyers line up (some overnight) outside the galleries in Dublin and Cork, to buy their favourite piece and see who the artist was.
Plans for 2020 forced Incognito to move online and allowed the Incognito collection more accessible to a wider community of art buyers internationally.
Now in its sixth year, Incognito remains the largest online art sale in Ireland with over 3,000 original postcard-size artworks for sale by new and internationally acclaimed artists, illustrators and designers.
Everything is sold online for €65. However, the identity of the artist is only revealed after the piece has been received.
Incognito is a fun and exciting way to start or add to your collection. It’s an opportunity to identify what your favourite theme, trend or style is and then be introduced to artist that created that original piece – the eye is in the beholder. It’s an opportunity to have a beautiful original piece of art and also help support the families of very sick children that Jack and Jill care for across every community in Ireland.
Previous contributors over the last 5 years Bob Geldof, Tracy Emin, Mick O’Dea, Vincent Devine, Peter Curling, Paul Costelloe, Adrian + Shane, Ruthie Ashenhurst, Martin Gale, Ange Bell, The Edge, Martin Mooney, Victor Richardson, Alice Maher, Abigail O’Brien, Maser, Bono, Bruce & Pattie Springsteen, Tommy Tiernan, Helen Steele, Robert Ballagh and hundreds of other passionate artists from around the world.
The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation is an Irish children’s charity that funds and delivers specialist home nursing and end-of-life care for children from birth to six years of age who have highly complex and life-limiting medical conditions. Its mission is to empower parents to care for their child at home, in communities across Ireland.
With over 400 children under the Jack and Jill wing, 2022 is a big year as Jack and Jill celebrate their 25th Anniversary.
