South Island Bumblebee Map

Listing image #1009912
This is an original, one of a kind painting of the New Zealand South Island and our relationship with bees as they are a necessary part of keeping our section of the globe moving. This is shown in the painting by having a geographically correct painting of the South Island as well as a globe as I was trying to connect the idea that without bees, New Zealand's agriculture industry would not be able to connect with the wider world as is also shown by map lines drawn over the painting in black fine liner.

The painting is painted using acrylic and is painted on 29.5cm x 21cm canvas paper and the frame is sold with the painting. The markings and textures throughout the painting were created by using some very simple household objects: bubble wrap and cardboard. Cardboard was responsible for the line markings and scraped background while bubble wrap created the honeycomb effect. The bees and the outline of the South Island (including the place names) are drawn in with black fine liner.
