Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Crypto crops are the secret ecological labourers of the urban environment; weeds which have adapted to survival in the harshest of conditions, they provide shelter and refreshment for other forms of life. These works are drawn in high contrast, dazzle camouflaged.
Please do not bid on artwork in our Art on a Postcard auctions if you intend on selling the artwork after you have purchased it. This auction has been organised for charity and all artworks have been generously donated by the artists to raise money for the Hepatitis C Trust. When the work produced for the charity is sold on the secondary market it damages our relationship with the artist and prevents us from fundraising.
