The painting's central feature is a brightly colored toucan perched gracefully inside a cup, creating an intense yet playful contrast.
The traditional elements of a still life -- lighting, colors, shape -- all come together seamlessly with a contemporary edge that is engaging, unique, and fresh. The hyperrealistic quality of the painting invites the viewer to study every detail as if examining it under a microscope. The result is an opening up of a world of beauty, texture, and vibrant color combined in a delightful and unexpected way.
Toucan in a Cup showcases the artist's virtuosity in capturing form, light, and texture beautifully, allowing the viewer to experience its exquisiteness through the lens of the artist's skill. The painting is an elegant, inspiring showcase of the contemporary evolution of still life art, presenting an awe-inspiring image that transcends its obvious appeal while engaging the viewer's attention through the magic realism of its presentation.
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.
