Three months ago, when the global lockdown just started and the renowned Saatchi Gallery in London had to close its doors as well, they decided to take a peek through their follower’s doors in form of an open call.

After getting countless messages on Instagram from followers asking them to take a look at their profile or to be shared on the Saatchi Gallery Instagram page, they have decided to pursue these requests.

Under the name #SaatchiTakeover they started an open call. Each week they would share a new theme to which anyone could submit their artwork digitally.
The community was enthusiastic and has eagerly sent in their work. We can just image how hard it must have been for the Saatchi Gallery Team to pick the winners, who were then shared on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter.


Browse through the winning artworks and get inspiring to take part in the next #SaatchiTakeover.
