If you love Bulldogs, you'll definitely love this piece!
Angel London works initially with a digital plan which he then sublimates/ heat presses at high temperature, over a hand painted gesso base onto large 6mm medium density fibre wood (MDF) and is hand finished with charcoal, chalk and oil paint.
This combination of mediums produces an earthy quality as the the mdf creates a true likeness to the tan colouring on the bulldog’s hair and contrasts beautifully with the white gesso primed underpainting and the steamed up monocle.
This outfit was often associated with the upper classes in early 20th century Great Britain. Furthermore, together with the cigar this piece could be considered as a satirical depiction of Winston Churchill, one of the most influential men in British politics of that century.
There are many Winston Churchill anthropomorphism style paintings out there that have set the bar, however this piece is so unique and so classically rendered, hence being sold before it reached the gallery for a private sale.
