THE DARK KNIGHTS
After the roaring [pun intended] success of We Three Kings , Robert Oxley’s latest release is a continuation of the majestic big cat theme. Featuring a tiger, lion and jaguar in three new limited edition prints, this collection is named after the black knight from Arthurian legend, a man who is good of heart, but ruthless and ambitious in his quest. This collection sees the wildlife artist return to his neon colour palette whilst adopting a new perspective by capturing the animals’ full body within the frame.

The end result upon viewing is a distinct impression of these predators stepping out of the darkness and seemingly off the canvas. The limited editions closely mirror Robert’s original artworks, thanks to the finessed techniques employed by our specialist atelier team. The canvas is 100% cotton, creating a premium, high-definition effect, while the high-gloss acrylic giclée varnish offers a great depth of colour and extra UV protection.
