This captivating painting portrays an orangutan sitting amidst a colorful pile of donuts, highlighting the stark reality of its endangered status. This art piece serves as a poignant commentary on the destructive impact of human actions on endangered species and their habitats. The juxtaposition of the orangutan with sugary donuts symbolizes the juxtaposition of our indulgence and ignorance as a species towards the urgent need for wildlife conservation. The painting evokes a sense of irony and alarm, prompting viewers to confront the consequences of our actions and reflect upon our responsibility to protect and preserve the natural world. It invites us to recognize the intrinsic value of every life form and motivates us to take action to prevent further harm to these magnificent creatures and their fragile 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.
