This is a serigraph (much like a silkscreen print) done by an artist named WEARING similar in style to the work of Keith Haring, that was why I had asked to see the signature. It was created in the mid to late 90's when this style of primary colors and experimenting with symbolism was popular.
The only Wearing as a listed (meaning valuable) artist was Gillian Wearing of England who is a conceptual artist and does not lean much towards this type of art.
This is an unlisted, likely local to where you purchased, artist and the letters AP indicate that this is an Artist's Proof, usually a series of 10 AP prints created for the artist to approve and/or make changes to colors, registration, and quality before the limited edition run of 99 prints was finally executed.
This limited edition print, artist's proof serigraph has a current value of £300 retail.
