About The Artwork

Informed by my ongoing fascination for wild tropical jungles and by my street art practice in urban settings, this painting is the junction between those two worlds I affectionate. It falls in line with my series of paintings titled "Urban Jungle". The series started in 2017 and is ongoing. It opens a dialogue between urban issues and nature. Through it, I raise questions about the relationship between our kind and our surroundings, the imposed force or the complicity we have with nature in its general form, and the overall struggles of our human nature. Here, a young girl tries to reach for the rested paw of a gold leopard asleep on a rock in the sun. She looks as if she just came out of the city, dressed flawlessly in contrast with the wild animal who belongs in the jungle. She wants to grab his paw for the same reason we all want to pet wild animals not quite aware of the consequences this might bring. The painting sets the scene the second before her fingers actually wake the gold animal up, hence the title "Careful What You Wish For" as we all happen to wish unreasonable things at times. Will she or won't she wake it, and what will come from it? The story is yours to tell from now on. ~ TECHNICAL DETAILS The artwork is sold stretched on canvas, varnished with satin invisible UV protection and ready to hang.

Best known for his cross-cultural approach, Oscar Lett stands out by his bold looking paintings prominently using black and contrasting metallic colours. Based in NYC, the Parisian artist loves to embrace the influences of the countries he lived in. After moving to London to study at Central Saint Martins, Oscar then moved to Kyoto as he sought teaching from the masters of Nihonga (traditional Japanese painting). Appropriating each culture and their aesthetics, O.L. developed a unique style depicting a world where opposites can coexist and where people overcome their struggles in impossible urban jungles. Working in large-scale and always craving bigger, Oscar naturally moved to New York in 2016 and made the street his new playground. Since then Lett has been developing a wide portfolio of murals in Europe and the U.S., allowing his fine art and street art practices to inspire one another.
