Contemporary Pop Realism, Wildlife
In this captivating painting, an endangered lioness is depicted with grace and vulnerability, seated within the confines of a vibrant red stiletto shoe. The juxtaposition of the majestic big cat and the symbol of femininity creates a powerful visual metaphor. It symbolizes the delicate balance between strength and fragility, highlighting the urgent need to protect and preserve both the endangered wildlife and the empowerment of women. The lioness, with her regal presence, represents the resilience and beauty of nature, while the stiletto shoe represents society's expectations and the pressures faced by women. Together, they evoke a deep sense of empathy and call for action to protect our environment and support gender equality.
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.
