The Product: Lion wall art print
A striking, lion wall art print rendered digitally by wildlife artist Talia Giles. This portrait is one of a growing collection entitled Animals V. Humans created by the artist, amongst whom the Snow Leopard and the Polar Bear are both available through us at Designs By Origin. The collection highlights the plight of these endangered species, whose futures lie in the hands of humankind. This proud and majestic portrait of a lion, with its rich colours and bold, painterly texture, celebrates the species’ rightful place as king of the African savannah and is one of artist Talia Giles’s most intricate digital artworks yet.
Talia starts with a series of photographs of each animal which she then combines and manipulates to create the perfect portrait pose, almost humanlike. Next, she digitally draws a complex net of triangles which form the base of the geometric image. Smaller, denser collections of triangles are used where more detail is required. Once the net is complete, each and every triangle is coloured individually to add depth, light and shade. Finally, background colours are trialled to set the mood and allow the character to come alive. On close inspection, these digital artworks are breathtaking in their detail.
Each limited edition and unique African lion art print (1/100) is hand-finished in 23-carat gold leaf.
These artworks look equally striking in an industrial, urban loft setting as in a ‘modern-rustic’, rural abode. Depending on your backdrop, you may want to choose a pale frame to in effect ‘disappear’. A modern, white frame against the mount and white/pale walls will, for example, allow the animal portrait to leap out from the wall. Alternatively, you may opt to outline the artwork with a strong line to create a definition or a boundary between the lion and, say, a busy all-over wallpaper. If this is your preference, go for a slim, warm-hued wooden frame to enhance the artwork’s earthy palette.
Print Info & Sizing: The lion art print is available in two A2 only, measuring 59.4cm x 42cm, comes signed and numbered with the edition and arrives rolled and ready for framing.
