KHOON खून (BLOODLINE)

Charcoal Drawing H81.5cm x W98.5cm

Limited edition Giclee prints on Hahnemuhle German etch fine art paper individually signed and numbered by the artist are currently available.

A special moment captured during an afternoon spent watching this tigress and her cub meander through the jungle. There was a purpose in their gait yet a casualness in their manner; their big paws padding along as they chuffed and panted. The mother lay down and her daughter walked over and lovingly rubbed her face against her mothers. It was such a promising sight; to see the next generation of healthy Bengal tigers being raised in the wild.

Awá

By |2019-10-14T11:22:14+00:00November 8th, 2018|People|

A woman from the nomadic Awá hunter-gatherer tribe in the Brazilian Amazon.

The Awá peoples have an intimate connection with the forest and live without any contact with outsiders and are some of the last uncontacted people on the planet. They are the most vulnerable tribe on earth due to their vulnerable immune systems and deforestation.

The tribe are famous for taking on orphaned animals as pets: most families have many more pets than people, from monkeys, raccoon-like coatis to wild pigs and king vultures. And the women are known to breastfeed monkeys and small pigs.

The Awá tribe are a egalitarian society where it is normal for women to take several husbands.

PRATIBIMB प्रतिबिंब (REFLECTION)

By |2019-10-14T11:31:33+00:00November 7th, 2018|Asia|

I spent an intense hour watching a mother and her three cubs herding spotted deer through thick jungle in an attempt to make a kill. I couldn’t always see what was going on but the sounds of hooves crashing through the forest and the terrified screams of the deer sent chills down my spine. The deer were being pushed this way and that by tigers darting at them from all directions. From time to time the tigers would sprint out of the jungle or crouch down and stealthy stalk right in front of me. It was a thrilling experience that filled all the senses and had my adrenaline pumping. Eventually the hunt came to an unsuccessful end and this male cub, hot and exhausted after the chase, lay down near me. He was panting and licking his lips and all of a sudden his expression froze with this intense yet distant gaze as if reflecting on the hunt.
