In this heartwarming painting, an orangutan sits contentedly, cradling their favorite toy—a soft and cuddly orangutan plush. This scene symbolizes the profound connection and sense of comfort that the orangutan finds within themselves. The orangutan's choice of a toy resembling their own species reflects a deep understanding of self and a desire for companionship and security. It highlights the innate need for love, comfort, and a sense of belonging, reminding us of the universal human longing for connection. This painting invites viewers to reflect on the power of self-acceptance and self-love, and the importance of finding solace and joy within oneself.
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.
