ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: The inspiration for the drawing was a special moment Alex exchanged with this beautiful primate. Alex was in awe of the orangutan’s formidable strength, juxtaposed with its soft pensive gaze, which comes across in this sensitive monochrome drawing.
ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Alex Fleming creates realistic art because he enjoys the challenge of it, and finds it very fulfilling to succeed in doing a subject justice as it stands. Alex might alter the odd thing in an artistic rendition, but it is always subtle, and rare. The real, natural world is immensely interesting to him already, so he leaves imagined alternatives to those more appreciative of them. Nature covers a gamut of size, colour, personality and beauty which Alex feels should be worthy of anyone’s attention. It is also constantly changing, largely for the worse, so he choses to donate a portion of all of his wildlife sales to animal charities.
