This explosive painting shows two angry hippos passionately fighting. The still, calming blue water behind them enhances their distress and adds to the sense of volatile energy within the image.
Another hippo watches the fight as the madness unfolds before its eyes while remaining calm. Another hippo is also swimming nearby without looking at the angry hippos. The two pairs in this painting could lead us to wonder which hippo we would relate to and allow us to challenge what we feel and how we express ourselves.
Due to the cool colours, this painting would be great in a bathroom. Equally, you could use this artwork in any other communal part of your house, such as a corridor, where you can be frequently reminded how emotions can rupture into fights and remind yourself to absorb the calming energy of the water and the restful hippos instead of the fighting duo.
