Heart Of Darkness is the second instalment of Robert Oxley’s enduringly successful collection, The Dark Knights. Dark, mysterious and dangerous, The Dark Knights series depict some of the planet’s deadliest wild cats.
Heart Of Darkness features a tiger, leopard and snow leopard that are joining a tiger, lion and jaguar from the first instalment. The artist has stepped away from his favourite neon colour palette and adopted shades of deep purple and black accented with yellows and greens for these three new artworks.
Instead of focusing on the face, Robert has painted the animals’ full body, and the effect is startling: the predators step out of the darkness and seemingly off the canvas.
To mirror the 2D effect of Robert’s original artworks, our specialist atelier team carefully reimagined the painting using state-of-the-art techniques. The canvas is 100% cotton, creating a premium, high-definition effect, while the high-gloss acrylic giclée varnish offers a great depth of colour and extra UV protection. Combined with the sleek frames, this creates a modern collection that can elevate any home décor.

This hypnotising trio of hand-varnished, limited-edition artworks by Robert Oxley harness a more unusual colour palette than the acclaimed wildlife artist is used to.
Cool-toned purples seamlessly blend into the darkness of the canvas while dramatically contrasting the bright yellow in the cat’s eyes and fur accents. Robert has taken inspiration from animal deities in ancient mythology and brought them into contemporary conscience through his art in the hope it will remind viewers of the importance of protecting these ever-important and powerful animals.
