Exclusive to Artfinder! This picture - one of a series - is a fusion of drawing, painting and digital manipulation. Because software played a vital part in the production of these images they can only be offered in print form. In other words, there’s no original as such. I do, however, limit the number of prints to a very small and therefore exclusive edition. Just five high-quality prints will be made of each image, on heavyweight satin sheen paper - ideal for framing and very durable. Every print will be signed on the front. Canvas can be used instead of paper if a prospective purchaser expresses a preference for it. Canvas costs more, but not excessively so. To enquire about canvas prints, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I should explain the umbrella title of the pictures in this series. In 2013, primitive humanlike remains were discovered in South Africa’s Rising Star cave system. After intensive research and discussion, it was agreed that the species represented by the fossils was an offshoot rather than a direct ancestor of modern humans. While the loosely-drawn figures of my series are not intended to resemble these particular hominins - dubbed ‘Homo naledi’ - it amuses me to link them in this way.
