Still Life with Six Circles by Hisham Echafaki
Still Life with Six Circles by Hisham Echafaki
Still Life with Six Circles is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Hisham Echafaki. Printed into Hahnemühle 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.

Playing with the seventeenth-century Dutch tradition, Still Life with Six Circles depicts a greyscale floral arrangement, brimming with blossoms and butterflies. Over the black and white composition, Echafaki superimposes six circles, which breathe colour into the scene. A comment on the natural beauty of the organic form, and on our long-standing relationship to it through the medium of art, Still Life with Six Circles is a timely update of a classic convention.

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.
