Lot 63 - Alexander Appleby - Digital Memories
Pencil on paper
Signed on Verso
This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust
Alex's main influences are derived from popular culture and undoubtedly the artworld which he is firmly a part of. Alex considers he was born to a painter and as such art these influences run deep within his family. To quote Alex, "a broad stroke of art practices excited me. Lately it is work of old masters like Botticelli, Durer and da Vinci, but I also see inspiration from modern painters like Christian Rex van Minnen, Dani Calundy and John Stark".

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
This is a work about digital media. The kind of imagery we consume through a computer screen. It sparks a fire in me as half my memories are tied to the virtual world.
