Nick's artwork is included in a collection of over 50 self-portraits by leading artists, iconic celebrities and sports legends as the culmination to Face Britain, the UK's largest art project. Over 230,000 children and teenagers created self-portraits that were projected onto Buckingham Palace for 3 nights in April to herald the start of the Jubilee and Olympic celebrations.

Nick Mason's original signed artwork, which we have great pleasure in giving you a special, exclusive sneak preview to [click the thumbnail] features him behind the wheel of his Bugatti racing car.

His fellow contributors include Ronnie Wood, Adele, Michael Morpurgo, Jamie Oliver, Sir Michael Caine, Felicity Kendal, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Sir Geoff Hurst, Dame Mary Peters, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Sir Stirling Moss, Adrian Newey and Jenson Button to name but a few. The aim is to reflect British culture and sporting achievement during the sixty years of Her Majesty's reign.

Proceeds from the Auction will support The Prince's Foundation for Children & the Arts, a charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales that champions the power of the arts to transform children's lives. Online bidding runs on from May 3rd - 13th, and here's a direct link to Nick Mason's self-portrait on eBay.
