Walks with Obi - The Debut Collection from Angus Gardner!

Walks with Obi - The Debut Collection from Angus Gardner!

Angus Gardner has been an artist for over 25 years. In fact, there is an excellent chance that you will have seen his work without even knowing it was him!

Angus has so far spent his career creating incredible artwork for commercial enterprises, from small but specialised high-end items to bespoke art pieces to adorn events like the Edinburgh festival.

His award-winning artwork has passed across some very prestigious desks belonging to several very well-known and highly respected British Brands!

He receives a brief from the company and he works to that brief, working to their needs and requirements and his very successful career is testament to that.

But up until recently, what he hadn’t yet had was artistic freedom… 

During lockdown, Angus found time and headspace in his daily walks with his German Shepherd, dog Obi. Living on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors gives them both a great landscape to explore and together they went on a voyage of discovery learning about the animals and birds, they encountered.

When society started meeting up again Angus bumped into an old friend he hadn’t seen since university and during their conversations, Angus described his work and the projects he had undertaken since they’d last met. The friend enquired as to what was Angus’ own style but Angus couldn’t tell him… he realised that he had never even thought about it… all he had ever known was to work to a brief, a huge variety of styles and mediums, but none were of his own choosing.

One evening, when he had some time to himself, Angus decided to start his own art journey and realised his walks with Obi were to be his inspiration.

Each day whilst out, and about, he kept his eyes, peeled for creatures and birds along the way. He began to make notes of the predicaments on the circumstances in which he found them, and this in turn led to the creation of this incredible collection of artwork.

Wildlife paintings with a human twist from North Yorkshire Artist Angus Gardner available at The Acorn Gallery in POcklington. Original paintings, limited edition prints all with delivery available.

Each individual print comes with a beautiful certificate of authenticity which tells the story of the animal and how they met with Angus and Obi.
