A well-known Turkish proverb says, "A lion sleeps in the heart of every brave man." Likewise, wildlife photographer and autism activist, Alfie Bowen, says that his "art has given [him] a voice when I didn’t have one before". His childhood experiences of bullying and isolation due to his autism pushed Alfie to discover this strength in wildlife photography which has since been retold on BBC Earth, in a feature-length documentary and in his upcoming September 2021 book.
Bold and unapologetic, the dark eyes and fur of the lion stand out with a timeless elegance in this hand-signed giclée print on 300gsm museum paper. Mounted and framed in black painted pine and spruce, the monochromatic colours of this piece create a "stronger emotional impact" and will make the perfect addition to a wide range of home styles. You can even combine this dazzling artwork with the others in Alfie's collection Call of the Wild.
