Dua Lipa was in the country recently to open for Bruno Mars on a massive sell-out tour, but that wasn't all she did while she was here.

The British pop star also took some time out to create a hand-made piece of art in order to raise money for Women's Refuge New Zealand.

The piece references her song IDGAF, a song about hearing from an ex at a time when she didn't need them anymore, and how empowered she felt being able to move on.

She spoke about it in a video, where she also explained why she "feels strongly" about supporting Women's Refuge.

She said: "I want a brighter future and a more positive world for everyone to begin with, but especially for women and children that suffer domestic abuse."

The A3 piece is currently being auctioned off on Trademe, along with a signed vinyl copy of Dua Lipa's self-titled album, a New Rules dressing gown, t-shirt, hand mirror and lipstick case.

At the time of writing, bidding was at $415 with the auction set to close on Friday. All proceeds will go directly to Women's Refuge New Zealand.
