Contemporary British artist Fran Giffard is known for her beautiful bird illustrations and art prints. Inspired by the intricacy and detail of natural history drawings, Giffard has amassed an impressive portfolio of ornithological artworks. Her pieces brilliantly capture the exoticism of the creatures, while translating the natural beauty into striking, graphic icons, each with a unique and personal touch.
‘Thirty-Five Birds’ is no exception: against a white background, Giffard has painted the colourful heads of thirty-five different bird types. From the Toucan to the Jay, the Blackbird to the Blue Tit, Giffard’s print reminds us that even the everyday birds possess their own captivating exoticism.
Minimally composed, with a graphic sensitivity, Giffard has allowed the sumptuous use of colour and distinctive drawing style to do all the talking - or should we say the tweeting!
