CONCEPT OF ARTWORK
The tiger has been a great source of inspiration for me, and when presented with the opportunity to paint a life-size sculpture I wanted nothing more than to paint it as it is: a tiger as a tiger. The identity of the tiger for me is tied to their bold black stripes. And just as the stripes seem to be leaving the sculpture, the future of these beautiful beasts' existence may become more mythical than real.
ABOUT ZIMBIRI (BHUTAN)
