Wildlife Art by Christopher Green

Tiger - CGR

This talented artist, based in Nottingham, demonstrates his love and understanding of his medium in his ethereal, colour rich paintings of a Tiger. Inspired by purist, Christopher Green brings a lavish quality to the animals that he depicts on board. Brush strokes, scratches and the sheer exuberance of the laying on of paint make his exciting representations of noble beasts a pleasure to behold.

Here Christopher Green depicts the Tiger in his prime, fully alert and looking frankly magnificent. Christopher Greens hyper realistic tiger appears almost ghost like as though he has been captured pictorially in situ. But how realistic is that version of ‘in situ’? I would argue that both settings are alien to the majority of the public, most not having personally experienced a close encounter with a large cat. This absence, this permission for the audience to view the tiger as they will, lends a more contemporary tone surely more fitting in a 21st century environment. That aside, no one can deny the skill of reconstruction. Every strand of hair, reflection in the eye and almost wet nose is painted to perfection. The skill of Christopher Green in visually reproducing the animal and giving it its own space to be admired is a stunning tribute of skill as a wildlife artist.

Christopher Green famous for portraits of a more graphic ‘Pop Art’ style has changed direction within this composition. The results outline just how talented he can be with a brush and paint palette. The work is on display within our gallery together with a multitude of further works.

Banksy. Do we invest?

Last week saw the opening of his latest exhibition. At a hotel nestled against the controversial barrier wall separating Israel from Palestine, Banksy has transformed the building with art and sculpture synonymous with its geographical and historical positon. Although it’s fair to say it will be critically analysed over the coming weeks with both good and bad reviews, one thing for certain is that Banksy is back on top of the art world. The honorary top spot was compounded by the fact that yesterday Sotheby’s sold a piece ‘This is a pipe’ for £285,000. A sum double its estimate.

Its a Pipe

Banksy is certainly hot property so let’s speculate as to why he continues to take the art world by storm. One might suggest his ideas are current and mainstream, incorporating a humorous stance residing within international cultures outlining war, consumerism, social media and politics. Others believe his success to be predominantly based upon a supposedly discreet identity. I personally believe his success is down to sheer skill in delivering the concept and by this I don’t mean his ability to stencil and spray paint onto a wall but to continue to create works that intrigue and inspire the entire globe. The old saying of letting the art do the talking is obviously paramount here and echoes forth with regards to the simply staggering effect Banksy has had upon the art market throughout his career.

So, down to the facts. A lot of people feel that Banksy paints on walls and or occasionally creates murals for A List celebrities, however obtaining a piece of art by Banksy doesn’t have to be that difficult… Here in the gallery we are exhibiting unsigned and signed works by Banksy. Over the past decade Banksy has released much signed work into the market. He created a number of limited editions that have become incredibly collectible, the most sought after being the famous ‘Girl with Balloon’. A piece (in good condition) is worth up to £70,000 on the open market. Not a bad investment considering its initial retail ticket was around £200.

As I mentioned there are a number of pieces in various galleries and adorning the walls of collectors. Some more exciting and deemed more collectable than others. The gallery is pleased to announce a number of signed and unsigned pieces by Banksy are on display. You are welcome to view works below with further more in our studio. If you would like information regarding his works or any particular pieces do contact us.
