A hand-embellished giclee print on boxed canvas by wildlife artist Robert Oxley.
As a little boy, Robert dreamed of becoming a zoo keeper. Today, the lions, tigers and elephants that roamed his imagination are given new life in his dazzling paintings.
He has returned for 2017 with Instinct: a collection inspired by his love of music and animals.
Robert says: '' I’ve painted African wild dogs a few times. But not for a long time. I’ve always loved them, their long adolescent legs, there curious nature, devotion to their pack, whenever I see them it almost makes me sad to remember where I’ve come from. The community of my home village which I left and haven’t found anywhere else. These funny clown-like dogs can’t fail to melt your heart, here three is not a crowd, I’ve used three dogs in this piece to represent my partner, my son and myself. The title is not an aggressive meaning but a curiosity for life and to seek out the things that inspire us and if you can do that in a group your winning.''
