This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
Gillie and Marc are international contemporary artists who have worked side by side for over 25 years. Their paintings and sculptures are held in major collections all over the world. The artists are absolutely thrilled to introduce their latest coffee table book, Pup Art - the fun and playful celebration of what happens when pop art meets popular pooch.
There's a reason we call them man's best friend. Dogs are by far the most popular pet with nearly 40% of all Australians choosing them as their loyal companion. Gillie and Marc are also dog-lovers who have been heralded as Australia's most celebrated dog artists. They own a beautiful Weimaraner called Indie and have also built a huge fan base from their Weimaraner-inspired Dogman artworks across the world.
Gillie and Marc's love of dogs sparked the idea for Pup Art, a collection of photographs that celebrates all the strange, varied, beautiful dogs in the world and brings them together in the most colourful and uplifting way. Pup Art is also a tribute to Pop Art, the much-loved artform that has made art fun, popular and accessible since the 1950s.
The artists have found the perfect mix of 40 different breeds of dogs. Gillie and Marc know that every dog has its own unique personality so with each eye-catching photo, buyers are treated to the backstory of their star. Meet Leopold, the Chinese Crested pup who can't get enough of coconut oil massages or the 1980s cult-flick, Labyrinth. Flynn is the frisbee-loving Border Collie who can make a wheel of cheese disappear in two minutes. And Charlie, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, is a sweet self-proclaimed "Mummy's girl" who would like to be a cat for a day.
Pup Art is equally about creating a visually appealing homage to pop art as it is about celebrating the diversity of all dogs and our love for them. This is one artwork you'll want to get your paws on.
The gorgeous coffee-table book Pup Art has just been released to book stores across Australia and is already in high demand!
