Elephants – The Shambles
Elephants at the Shambles York is a Fine Art Print of a landscape painting by artist Ken Davies.
The title of the piece is Elephants. York is a fabulous place to visit and a walk down the Shambles is essential. If you wait patiently enough and don’t make any sudden moves the elephants will come out to play.
This piece was created from a photograph in order to capture the necessary details for the piece. Ken does not usually work from photos but does so when things need to be in the right place. Ken chose to hide elephants in the piece because York is a favourite place that Nellie likes to visit. If you look closely you will also find the letters from the word Shambles though sadly no prizes for spotting the large S.
Ken Davies is an avid doodler and an expert colourist. Ken is often asked about how he achieves clean white lines. Although the technique is a closely guarded secret, it is a traditional technique involving a pen and paintbrushes. Hidden things are an added feature to show a frivolous side. Many observers find their own shapes in the pieces like cloud gazing or attributing meaning to ink splats.
As an artist, Ken Davies, is inspired by his love of the natural environment and enjoys capturing scenes associated with nature and water. This piece is unusual for Ken as it is a city scene. He likes to explore and experiment with different media combining media that seem incompatible. Dragons is part of his hidden collection.
The print is 37 cm by 27 cm in a light snow white mount of 50 cm by 40 cm. There is the additional option to buy the natural solid wood frame which shows the work to its best.
