Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

“Dau Gi Bach comes from a Welsh nursery rhyme about two dogs coming back home having lost one of their shoes. I'm interested in how my identity has been formed from various cultural inputs and how these are tied up in a minority language and class structures.” 

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; all artworks have been generously donated by the artists to raise money for charity. When a work is sold on the secondary market it damages our relationship with the artist and prevents us from fundraising.
