The art-for-charity project

Australian Open 2022 champion tennis player and Wishmaker Ash Barty and acclaimed Australian artist Ashvin Harrison joined forces to create a one-off original artwork which was auctioned in January 2022, with all proceeds donated to Make-A-Wish® Australia.

The auction items

The project was initiated by Swiss watchmaker Rado, who in partnership with internationally renowned online art gallery Singulart, auctioned the vibrant artwork, the tennis balls and racquet used in its creation, and a limited edition Rado HyperChrome Ash Barty timepiece.

An incredible $60K was raised!

Thank you to all the bidders and to everyone involved in this special collaboration.
