Detailed description

Picture "Kissing Elephants", on stretcher frame

At first glance, the picture looks like a large-scale, abstract mosaic. Only when looking at the picture a second time, the shape of the two elephants facing each other become visible. They are formed by the crisscrossing lines meandering across the whole surface and the bright coloured elements. The question of "representationalism" or "abstraction" does not concern the artist; his work - like African art since time immemorial - aims primarily at capturing the symbolic, the essential, indeed the core of nature in a fantasy-like image.

Giclée print on canvas, stretched on a stretcher frame. Limited edition of 199 copies, signed and numbered on the back. Size 100 x 100 cm. ars mundi Exclusive Edition.
