Original Artwork (not available): oil, model’s blood and gold leaf on canvas, 120 x 80 cm, 2017.
There is no blood and no real gold leaf on the print version.
With the art I transmit the importance of the living diversity of creatures on our planet. The blood I use to complete the artwork is an undoubted symbol of death that leads to think about us and our role in the world. The wolf is a species traditionally persecuted by humans, even fairy tales associate the wolf with a bad figure that must be defeated. Instead the wolf is a complex and intelligent animal. Evolving into a dog, he became our best friend. This fascinating animal is fundamental for the ecosystems in which he lives: healthy forests need wolves.
The boy of this painting offered his blood, used as medium on the canvas, in solidarity for his favorite animal.
I am available to paint similar artworks on commission – Have your portrait together with your favorite animal! Realize the dream of seeing you close to it. Wild animals must be respected and observed at a safe distance in nature. In a painting at home, however, you can see them as many times as you want, next to you. Contact me immediately to get started!
