‘Wild Life’ is a Giclée print by contemporary Bavarian artist Eismann. Printed onto 310gsm Hahnemühle German Etching Paper, the piece is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Eismann creates prints of striking beauty, using a highly skilled, stencilling process. Combining photography with hand-cut, layered stencil work, Eismann draw inspiration from the everyday, translating portraiture and scenes from the natural world into his compelling and unique aesthetic. ‘Wild Life’ depicts a small fox crouched against an off-white, block-printed background. Eismann has cleverly replicated the texture of the animal’s fur, which resembles, in places, a thick, green forest: the scene of its natural habitat contained within its own coat. Its a clever use of illusory technique, and the careful relationship between colour, tone and texture works to astonishing effect. The result is both beautiful and hypnotic: a mastery of contemporary print work.
