A bittersweet tale behind this brand new autumn 2017 limited edition release by one of the UK’s favourite contemporary wildlife art practitioners, Robert Oxley, yet one exceedingly well interpreted through the highly illustrative form by a past master in the subject. Essentially this hand-embellished and signed boxed canvas iteration pays pictorial homage to the titular, ‘Harambe’; to those not in the loop a gorilla who paid the ultimate price in the direct aftermath of being responsible for the death of a three-year old boy who had climbed into his closure at America’s Cincinnati Zoo. Speaking eloquently on what led him to create this compositionally stunning 30” x 40” study, the best-selling Oxley went on to say; “I wanted to paint Harambe on a black background to give him the feeling of darkness stepping into the light – like going to heaven and leaving this harsh and sometimes brutal world he was forced to live in.” To order your copy of this 150-run only print, please ensure that you speak with us at your first convenience, as business is expected to be brisk.
