Robert Oxley | The Dark Knights

Dark, deadly and dangerous, the first instalment of The Dark Knights by the wildlife artist Robert Oxley includes three ferocious limited edition prints. 

The painter, whose art appeared in a January 2021 episode of Channel 4's Grand Designs, took inspiration from natural history and medieval legend for this trio of hand-varnished artworks. Featuring a tiger, lion and jaguar, the collection saw Robert return to his neon colour palette and adopt an exciting new perspective. Instead of focusing on the face, Robert has painted the animals' full body, and the effect is startling: the predators step out of the darkness and seemingly off the canvas.

To mirror the 2D effect of Robert's original artworks, our specialist atelier team carefully reimagined the painting using state-of-the-art techniques. The canvas is 100% cotton, creating a premium, high-definition effect, while the high-gloss acrylic giclée varnish offers a great depth of colour and extra UV protection. 

Following the popularity of the first release, Robert followed this collection up with The Dark Knights - Heart of Darkness in August 2021.

Bringing the outdoors inside

With magazines like Homes & Gardens naming global influences as one of the season's biggest trends, the collection is a stylish exploration of some of the world's most exciting locations. From the Amazon River to Tanzania, Robert's three majestic predators create a feeling of wanderlust that can help viewers escape to somewhere beautiful. 

Hand-finished by our specialist atelier team, the boxed canvas prints can be mixed and matched with houseplants and textures for a rustic aesthetic, or with modern furniture for a more contemporary look. 

This set of three hand-signed editions is priced at £2,150, or £795 individually. Pictured (L-R): 'Calathea', 'Jatupo', 'Rufiji'. Shop here
