This hippo is one cool kid. He considered himself a bit of a rebel, against the establishment and for listening to loud music. But the real reason he decided to try on a pair of Docs was that it was the favourite shoe for so many people around the world. He thought that if he could put himself into this shoe, all the Doc lovers of the world would think about hippos whenever they slid their chunky boots on. Maybe then he could inspire people to help save his kind from extinction.
The iconic style of Gillie and Marc’s Thick Texture Paintings provide the tangible dimensions of a sculpture with the convenient spatial simplicity of a painting. Multiple layers of impasto are mixed with the paint. With each piece, Gillie and Marc are sharing a part of their unique experience through choppy brushstrokes and captivating visuals that create a harmonious image that is more than just a 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.
