The Prize

Entitled, “The Resistance”, the piece is painted on a 1500mm x 1000mm framed canvas using acrylic and draws on the Ukrainian flag as inspiration.

Andy Crofts, artist:

Growing up as an only child in Northampton, Andy was drawn into his own imagination and has been painting and creating art his whole life. He's notably known for his band The Moons and as being a long-term bass player for UK music legend Paul Weller.

Now, the musician has set up an online auction for ‘The Resistance’ and is encouraging art lovers who connect with the piece to throw their support behind it. All proceeds will go to War Child’s work with children affected by recent events in Ukraine.

Andy Crofts said: “I watch the news all the time and wish I didn't. I needed to do something as I constantly feel so helpless and keep seeing so much suffering. 

I have played, with Weller, for War Child UK several times and applaud what War Child do, they are the only charity who specialise in protecting children in conflict, they get straight in and help, so I want to help them.

I painted 'The Resistance' with the plan to sell it and give the money to War Child, but the plans have grown as the immediate support and interest in this piece has been amazing.

We need your help to achieve maximum exposure to ensure that 'The Resistance' raises as much money as possible to help the children caught up in this appalling conflict. We are looking to find that one spectacular person who wants to help and loves the artwork.”
