Enamel and Oil Pastel on Canvas
Contemporary Expressive, Wildlife, Animals
The lion has and always will be the King of the jungle (or grasslands). Throughout history, he has been a symbol of strength and courage. He wondered if this was what brought so many poachers and trophy hunters to follow him. He was proud of his beautiful mane and he couldn’t understand what use was it hanging on someone’s wall gathering dust. The mane belonged to the King and no trophy hunter would ever be as worthy as he. As King, he could live the way he wanted.
In this highly expressive and passionate style Gillie and Marc have let their emotions run free in this explosive collection of freehand painting. Inspired by the styles of Brett Whiteley, Francis Bacon, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Gillie and Marc have combined enamel paint with oil pastel to breathe life into the worlds most endangered species. Over the past five years, Gillie and Marc spent hours sketching and studying wildlife, travelling the globe to meet these animals up close. These sketches have now been brought to life in vibrant colour with love and passion. Each painting is created as a team with both the artists bringing their own emotion into every painting.
Please note: All canvases come stretched and ready to hang, however if you would like your painting to be framed, Gillie and Marc are happy to provide this service for you at your request. For framing enquiries please email us.
It is important to keep your painting out of direct sunlight and not to lean anything against the surface of the canvas. If it gets dusty, it can be cleaned with a soft dry cloth.
