Art Description

"The Abduction of Europa" was born from my fascination with the timeless mythological tale of Europa and Zeus. The narrative, rich with symbolism and intrigue, provided a fertile ground for artistic exploration. I sought to breathe new life into this ancient story, to transport viewers to a realm where reality and myth entwine seamlessly.


The choice of medium - acrylic, oil, and ink - allowed me to layer textures and colors, creating a dynamic interplay that mirrors the complexities of Europa's journey. Each brushstroke is a deliberate brush with destiny, a dance between the earthly and the divine.


Capturing Europa's expression was pivotal. It had to convey a mix of surprise, curiosity, and an underlying awareness of the profound shift occurring. Through her posture and flowing garments, I aimed to encapsulate her vulnerability, a stark contrast to the immense power embodied by Zeus in his bull form.

About Canvas Prints

Canvas prints are printed on a high quality 100% cotton gloss canvas material which is 300GSM. Gloss cotton canvas offers fantastic colour reproduction.


All prints are coated with a quality protective coating which protects against moisture, UV and dust.


Stretcher bar are used quality kiln dried width are 3cm in depth. The raised lip around the outside of the stretcher frame protects the print from pressing onto the frame and becoming dented with the outline of the frame edges.


All mounted prints are stretched and stapled onto the wooden stretcher frame. The staples are then covered and finished with a tape to minimise the scratching of painted walls during hanging and to give an overall better finish.
