Questions & ANswers
Q: What is an AP?
An AP is an Artist proof and is the most valuable in the series.
It’s the one that is the final go-ahead then the edition gets printed. An artist holds on to the final one and usually keeps it to resell in the future or keep within the family. An AP is usually worth 30% more than the rest of the edition.
Q: How long do neons last?
Neon can last 20 years of being left on constantly.
Q: How to care for diamond dust?
Diamond dusted artworks are especially delicate and should be handled with care. It is normal to have some diamond dust fall out. We recommend having your work framed with us to ensure the delicate nature of the piece is handled with proper care.
