Contemporary Pop Realism, Wildlife
The painting captures an endangered wombat perched comfortably within the confines of a walking shoe, beautifully conveying a powerful message. The image symbolizes the growing threat faced by these remarkable creatures, as their natural habitats are increasingly encroached upon by human activities. The wombat's presence within the shoe serves as a poignant reminder of the shrinking space available for wildlife, as urbanization and human expansion continue to infringe upon their territories. The juxtaposition of a wild animal within a symbol of human accomplishment highlights the need for awareness and action in safeguarding these unique creatures and their habitats. This painting encourages us to consider the impact of our actions on the natural world and calls for responsible stewardship, demonstrating the delicate balance required to preserve the extraordinary diversity of our planet's ecosystems.
Bringing all your favourite things to life, from that pair of converse sneakers you wear every day to your most precious teacup, and pairing them with some of the most endangered animals in the world, Gillie and Marc are giving a unique perspective on the things we consider to be most important. Inspired by pop artists such as Andy Warhol and mixed with beautifully realistic animals using their iconic thick texture painting style, this Pop Realism collection is bringing the wild into our lives in a striking yet joyous experience.
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.
