Description
As the wildebeest prepares to set out on its yearly migration, a phenomenal natural event involving around 1.5 million of her fellow wildebeest moving north to greener pastures, she hopes this time will be better. Although not threatened with extinction, she can see how the humans have devastated her habitat. She wonders if she has enough energy to put on yet another spectacular show in the migration so that the humans wake up to the wonders of the natural world and the importance of protecting it.

Artwork Features
In this highly expressive and passionate style Gillie and Marc have let their emotions run free in this explosive collection of freehand painting. Inspired by the styles of Brett Whiteley, Francis Bacon, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Gillie and Marc have combined enamel paint with oil pastel to breathe life into the worlds most endangered species. Over the past five years, Gillie and Marc spent hours sketching and studying wildlife, travelling the globe to meet these animals up close. These sketches have now been brought to life in vibrant colour with love and passion. Each painting is created as a team with both the artists bringing their own emotion into every painting. 

Please note: All canvases come stretched and ready to hang, however if you would like your painting to be framed, Gillie and Marc are happy to provide this service for you at your request. For framing enquiries please email: gallery@gillieandmarc.com
