Beauty and the beast

Beauty and the beast

 This is a limited edition giclée print of a mixed media art work. For the silverback gorilla I used graphite, conte , and charcoal pencils. For the butterfly I used watercolours.

The Silverback Gorilla is holding a fragile butterfly with a tentative thoughtful expression, thus echoing the childhood story we all know. This artwork challenges the concept of beauty. In my animal artwork , I try to capture the soul of the animal through many hours and layers of coloured pencil.

In my art I aim to capture the depth, mood and detail of a single tender moment in time. Every artwork has intricate details which is my signature style
