Custom puptraits on sale #33
A little while back we shared with you a fab exhibition at Surrey gallery McAllister Thomas Fine Art - Hooray for Hollywood: dogs and nudes (we blush) imagined by Robert James Clarke...and now we have more great news from this prolific painter of pups.
In a gesture of pre-Christmas spirit Clarke, who's captured many a celebrity mutt - Kate Moss's Archie, Alan Carr's Bev and Joyce and Fergie's (musician not ex-Royal) and Meatloaf's canine pals (we name drop a little) - is offering you his beautiful bespoke pup-traits at half price (sans nude we might add... unless you fancy that).
Trained in London at the esteemed Central St Martins, Clarke's style is unique “I try to capture the essence of the dog. […] Each dog has a different personality: I try to capture that in paint. […] Sometimes it all comes together like magic: other times, it’s the smallest detail like adding a dot to the eye that makes the dog spring from the canvas.” And we can personally attest to this: Clarke's illustration of our dog muse Frida (see below) was spot on - capturing her likeness and spirit to perfection. It's an illustration we will treasure always.
But we digress, this incredible offer runs for four days only, and there are only so many orders Clarke can fill in time for the holidays, so be quick! What better way to treat your pup or their Growlmama. We love.
Both drawings and paintings available.
Offer ends 28 October 2017.
