Introduce a timeless elegance to your living space with the debut collection from wildlife photographer Alfie Bowen. This trio of monochromatic black-and-white photographs captures the intense beauty of the animal kingdom and is ideal for creating a statement wall in your living room, bedroom or dining space.
Featured by BBC Earth and lauded by Sir David Attenborough, Alfie's emotional scenes were recently the subject of a feature-length documentary and will appear in his upcoming book in September 2021. The new Call of the Wild collection symbolises his remarkable journey from a child bullied for his autism to one of the UK's most exciting contemporary artists.
The hand-signed giclée prints depict a lion, chimpanzee and leopard, making them an ideal gift for anyone passionate about wildlife. Presented on a museum-quality cotton paper, the artworks are framed in a sustainable black pine and spruce that gives these stylish pieces a contemporary feel. Available individually and as a set of three, they are curated in a select edition of just 195.

If your home is your sanctuary, Mother Nature could help you to create a much-needed sense of serenity and even help to boost your mood and reduce stress levels.
Biophilic design (incorporating the natural world within a man-made environment) is one of 2021's biggest trends. From potted plants to botanical prints and natural materials like stone, bamboo and cotton, this eco-friendly aesthetic is great for anyone who is trying to shop more sustainably.
With a focus on craftmanship and high-quality materials (two things we pride ourselves on), the trend is believed to promote wellness, mindfulness and a balance between our work and personal lives. And as art has been proved to increase workplace productivity and promote mental wellbeing, wildlife art could be the next step in incorporating this trend within your living or office space.
Alfie's monochromatic photographs are perfect for enhancing a minimalist interior, as his scenes focus on light, contrast and emotion to create a focal point, rather than colour. This modern aesthetic can also complement accessories that maximise natural light, including glass and mirrors.
If you'd like something more colourful, why not consider a psychedelic wildlife print by Robert Oxley, or a dynamic glass giclée by Richard Rowan, who has travelled the world to capture the wonders of the sky. Our sculpture collection also includes bronze and resin animal sculptures by Roxy Winterburn and Steve Winterburn, plus miniature sculptures by the 'Frogman' himself, Tim Cotterill.
