From the shadows of Robert Oxley’s dark new artworks, three of the animal kingdom’s rulers emerge. Inspired by dystopian films and books – including the work of Swiss artist H.R. Giger, who worked on Ridley Scott’s 1979 Alien movie – We Three Kings captures the majesty of the world's deadliest predators in a new 2D format.
Robert adds: "Each of these cats commands respect and strikes fear into all who face them. They are all kings in their own right in the African plains and Indian and Amazonian rainforests."
From helping koalas to painting a charity lion sculpture, Robert is vocal about his passion for animals. Inkeeping with his values of sustainability and conservation, his new works feature ethically-sourced materials to help protect the environment.
Crafted in the UK, the pine stretcher bars used to mount the artworks are sourced from sustainably managed forests.
Our specialist atelier team worked hard to bring these limited edition prints as close to the original paintings as possible. In contrast to Robert’s previous collections, the works have been printed using a new production technique to give them a less textured finish and draw attention to the incredible detail.
The canvas is 100% cotton, creating a premium, high-definition effect. A high-gloss acrylic giclée varnish offers a great depth of colour and extra UV protection.
"Shadow play presents the cats coming out of the darkness, stepping into the light. The black background is a nod to the primitive darkness."
