‘The African Lion' is made from hand cut glass, shattered glass, diamond dust, spray paint, ink and resin over an original photo taken by Dan.
Dan is fresh from a recent trip to London and was busy photographing lots of street and urban environments. This sparked an idea to combine his endangered animal style with his photography. The smashed glass is still evident and some new materials will also be introduced.
Staying true to his love of colour and mixed media, Dan Pearce’s iconic style is still evident in his new animal series, ‘Endangered’. Spray paint, aluminium, and resin – the key ingredients to a Dan Pearce original – are all still there, with the new addition of shattered glass and glass shards; a parody that tragically echoes the fragile future of these incredible animals.
“I along with a lot of people were recently moved by the death of the last white Rhino 'Sudan'. It led me to think about and focus on the many species which may no longer be around by the time I have grandchildren. I used this topic of majestic animals to experiment and progress my work and techniques. I’m enjoying the challenges that new mediums bring – such as diamond dust and shattered glass”
Please note - Dan is selling 2 originals so they might slightly differ to make teach one totally unique
