Cy Baker – Kestrel on Candelabra Tree

Drawing, Original | 100 × 100 cm | Framed


Out of stock

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: This piece was inspired by a roadside viewing of a beautiful little bird, the grey kestrel. We were driving along the back roads of Uganda and as soon as I saw this wonderful little bird of prey perched on a succulent, known as the candelabra tree, I immediately thought it would look fantastic on a wall.

There are many reasons I create art, and one of the simplest of those is that it will just look great. Nature is extremely complex and is usually beautiful, so this was one of those times I got huge amounts of pleasure simply trying to capture that beauty in a pure, simple way.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Cy Baker lives in a time where most of the world is finally waking up to the environmental crisis mankind brought into being.  He considers his job as an artist is to spread the message of how valuable, beautiful and fragile our planet is. He feels his part in this is to try to capture and communicate some of the raw, spiritual emotion felt when interacting with nature. Cy comments that he cannot capture the way these moments touch one’s soul in words, photographs or music, so he does so in the only way he knows, through his artwork.
