Item Description

PINK ELEPHANT ? hand painted print ? limited edition 20 of 48
 
Size: 11.8" x 15.6" (30cm x 40cm)
Material: 378gsm premium quality canvas printed with archival ink and hand-embellished with acrylic paint and acrylic varnish
Limited edition of 48 unique pieces worldwide (original large scale acrylic painting was sold)
Hand-signed and numbered
Stretched on a 0.7" (1,8cm) wooden frame (spruce) 

This one-of-a-kind fine art print edition was made to be a perfect gift or a unique addition to your art collection. 

I personally reworked this piece with a fine brush and acrylic paint, to enhance the reproduced details of the original artwork. This means that it is made to be a truly unique artwork in itself: None of the 48 editions is alike; each one is as diverse as the original painting which inspired its creation. 

In my final step I varnished this piece by hand, which preserves the integrity of your hand-embellished print, ensuring that it is protected from dust, moisture, scratches and UV light. 

Artist Bio:

With her PINK SAFARI collection Sabrina Rupprecht aims to raise awareness of endangered wildlife, exemplifying the beauty of these majestic species and giving them an opportunity to be praised in the form of art.


After spending a year travelling through Southern and East Africa, Rupprecht developed a love for the continent, its fascinating cultures, exhilarating nature and wonderful wildlife. 

Residing in Cape Town, South Africa, Rupprecht?s wildlife art is a reflection of her personal experiences, and an attempt to capture the essence and emotion of the animals with her own bright and vibrant interpretation of what she saw.

All artworks are hand-painted in a color spectrum of brilliant, popping pink paired with leering blue crystal eyes that strike a tone of both reverence and power which perfectly capture the essence of the animals. 

Painting using acrylic on canvas, Rupprecht combines two opposing styles in her technique: Viewed up close, the paintings seem to consist mainly of multiple layers of acrylic paint in random organic shapes.  

Viewed from the distance, the paintings come alive to figurative and photo realistic wildlife portraits which draw the viewer in. Multiple blocks and shapes of color are layered on top of each other in a time consuming process using a small paintbrush to create detail. 

Rupprecht's Pink Safari art has gained fast popularity internationally and are featured in numerous art and lifestyle magazines such as Galore magazine, DOLCE luxury lifestyle & fashion magazine, The South African Artist magazine, Good Art Guide, Art Knews magazine, Art San Diego and many more. Apart from various broadcasting and television interviews in which she discusses wildlife conservation and the power of art in our society, one of her publication highlights has been a feature in the February 2019 issue of the British VOGUE - the world's number one fashion magazine.
