Harry Bunce, Suave Woodland Animals (new artist)

Harry Bunce - Faith Webfile

What comes to mind when you think of British woodland areas, The Animals of Farthing Wood, The Tales of Peter Rabbit, The Wind in the Willows? New artist Harry Bunce takes inspiration from our favourite creatures and gives them a modern twist.

Originally from Hampshire, Harry moved to Bristol to study and has hung around Somerset ever since; unfashionably honest he quotes Hockney, George Herriman and Beatrix Potter as influences.

His cast of cool, un-knowable, vaguely sinister anthropomorphic animals rest deep in our consciousness at a time when the only animals many of us see are urban foxes scrounging through bins.

‘Love in the Air’ Limited Edition on paper (framed) Edition of 33

By reclaiming these icons and reinventing them, Harry’s work breathes new life into old friends and makes us regard them with fresh eyes. Cute? Maybe, but they’re rarely cuddly: he has badgers carrying shotguns, red-jacketed foxes, anarchist hares and squirrels touting what look suspiciously like Walther PPKs.

The gallery is currently stocking four of Bunce’s Signed Limited Edition Prints – ‘Faith’, ‘Charity’, ‘Hope’ and ‘Love in the Air (London)’ that perfectly capture his wayward characters, each telling their own tale.

His works have been described variously as ‘Bucolic Street Art’ and ‘Potter meets Tarantino’ – a reclusive country cousin of the Bristol art scene..? Not really – Harry is hard to pigeon-hole, he lets his characters do the talking…
