SOLD I am King is a large expressive impressionist portrait measuring 97 x 130 x 3 cm. I love cats, and the poise and grandeur of lions are irresistible to paint. I decided to create a portrait rather than a family study as I wanted the viewer to be drawn by the eyes rather than the composition. The lions eyes are the focal point of the painting, holding the gaze amongst the hub of strong colour. The abstract tone and line surrounding the lion give the impression of the lion hunting, stalking through grass whilst his gaze is fixed on his prey. I Am King is a contemporary painting using abstract expressionist techniques juxtaposed against fine art. It has boxed edges which have been painted black and has been coated in a satin varnish to protect the pigments. I Am King is ready to hang and comes with a signed certificate of authenticity. All paintings are shipped in custom made wooden crates to ensure their safe transportation.
