THE INSPIRATION - The Lion's Roar by REK - is a stunning example of the photo realistic style the artist's work has become synonymous with.Special attention has been paid to the artist's favourite elements, critical to the over all effect is the vibrant orange eye, startlingly lifelike beak and wrinkled skin areas.Set against his signature modern titanium white back drop to bring focus entirely to the avian subject. The reference image has been photographed from beneath the field of view, the result is the cockatoo perching proudly above the viewer surveying the world below him, his beautifully realistic beak slightly agape signalling a mighty roar is imminent.The Australian red-tailed black cockatoo has long been a favourite subject, and this work represents a new zenith in technical skill and composition.This artwork is float framed in a custom made matt black hardwood box frame, and painting using only the finest artist grade acrylic paint and hand stretched wright and co poly cotton fine weave canvas.Art works by REK are to be considered investment pieces, the value of his work has increased by over 200% in the past 3 years as the artist's reputation and skill continues to expand.
