A hand-embellished boxed canvas by wildlife artist Robert Oxley.

Describing his work as “psychedelic wildlife painting”, Robert Oxley paints from the heart. Like the abstract artist Jackson Pollock, his work is shaped by spontaneity and free association.

He usually begins by blocking in shapes for the eyes and mouth before cutting in the form of the animals and building up colour with successively thicker paint. His signature drip-effect is created by letting the paint run free down the canvas.

This piece is inspired by the former US president Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919). After refusing to shoot a bear during a Mississippi hunting trip in 1902, Roosevelt was satirised in The Washington Post by the political cartoonist Clifford K. Berryman. Upon seeing the cartoon, a married couple in Brooklyn created a stuffed bear and named it a ‘teddy bear’. Robert adds: “The rest is history!”

Find out how he makes his signature drip effect here.
