Because of the attention and care that I put into each original painting, originals can last multiple generations if properly cared for. I spend hours meticulously crafting something unique, using old master techniques and the highest quality materials, such as Holbein brand paints. After completion, a UV protective removable Gamvar varnish is applied.
This painting arrives framed and ready to hang via the pictured wooden frame secured by 30lb wire and d-rings. It also includes a Certificate of Authenticity. Paintings are professionally packaged and insured during shipment.
Q. Where did you get the inspiration for this piece?
I used to do Origami all the time as a child. I’d make intricate paper animals when I was bored in class. It felt right to make a series of Origami paintings that combined the many avenues of art that I’ve practiced.
Q. How were you pushing your boundaries as an artist?
I learned a lot about painting by painting this series. My previous work was a lot looser. The rigid photo-realistic style for this series further developed my skills as an artist.
Q. How does this artwork make you feel?
Origami reminds me of my childhood. I’m attempting to create something beautiful while simultaneously trying to convey the feeling of something impermanent or fragile.

"Cedric, I don't know where to start. There are no words to describe how fabulous this painting is. It is beyond amazing. As an avid art collector, I haven't seen talent like this in quite awhile. It's quickly become one of my favorites. Thank you for everything! Anyone considering one of your paintings, should buy it now. Xoxo"
"As unforgettable yet controversial images go, it’s hard to top the one made by artist Cedric Chambers."
"A larger than life painting with larger than life characters. Artist worked hard to complete sale. Cannot fault, will purchase again in future. Paintings look much better in person, photos do not do justice to the depth of artistry. Highly recommended"
