Leo Burnett ad agency has commissioned a set of cards featuring artworks by leading artists and designers that will be sold on behalf of UK homeless charity Shelter. To launch the set, the original artworks for the cards will be on show at the Haunch of Venison gallery in London until Monday.
Alexander McQueen – King of Spades
Gillian Wearing – Five of Hearts
The set of playing cards follows Leo Burnett’s House of Cards campaign for Shelter, and the artists and designers involved in the project include Alexander McQueen, Neville Brody, Kyle Cooper, and Gillian Wearing. A selection of our favourite card designs are shown here. The full deck is on display at the gallery until Monday, and members of the public can make silent bids on the artworks over the course of the exhibition, with a final auction taking place on the closing night.
Kyle Cooper – Seven of Spades
Miles Aldridge – Nine of Hearts
To help promote the exhibition, Leo Burnett also commissioned four artists to perform live art events – each were given blank canvases and created their own cards in various locations across London. Shown below is Rude hard at work on the Ace of Spades.
