‘Family Portrait’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Hisham Echafaki. Printed into Hahnemuhle Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 30 and is signed and numbered by the artist.


Contemporary artist Hisham Echafaki is known for his original artworks in oil, acrylic and resin, that comment on our complex relationship with the natural world. In his works, Echafaki employs trompe-l’oeil techniques, transforming insects and animals into faux taxidermy, to critique the ethics of framing natural life as objects of ornamentation, and to showcase the beauty of biological design alongside the craft of visual art.



For ‘Family Portrait’ Echafaki fuses elements from the natural and the man-made, for a powerful comment on our troubled relationship with the animal kingdom. An opulent room of tiled floors, wood panelling, and floral wallpaper provides the backdrop. On the wall, beside sprays of graffiti tags, a stag’s head has been mounted, gazing down at his family: a live doe and her fawn, who stand surrounded by garlands of ivy and autumn foliage. By condemning the exploitation of the natural world, Echafaki’s painting also looks for ways in which the artificial and the organic might exist in harmony, through the making of beautiful visual art.




About The Artist - Hisham Echafaki


Hisham Echafaki is a self-taught painter whose body of works focuses on patterns in nature and the animal world. Working in oil , acrylic or resin, his work often features surrealist compositions with animals with a particular emphasis on endangered species. Whilst his work evokes a sense of wonderment for nature’s colours and patterns, it often incorporates anthropomorphic and trompe-l'oeil features that engage the viewer to reflect on our complex relationship with the animal world as well the importance of conservation and protection of the planets rich diversity.



Hisham Echafaki also paints multidimensional portraits of animals, in resin and Perspex giving the optical illusion that they are or were once real specimen. The animals often display anthropomorphic features on their wings or bodies with recognizable patterns found in art, design, science or architecture while others are simply more lifelike. Each piece is a tribute to the beautiful intricacy and complexity of the animal world but also a critique of how humans are affecting and shaping evolutionary changes in animal species.
