When I first met Yuba Raj, he worked out of the Royal Arts Studio. A quiet man, his Danger Dogs have a special naïve quality. The series of 6 above were from a newspaper flyer advertising dogs needing to be rescued. All with a pitiful ‘adopt me’ look in their eye captured by Yuba Raj.
Yuba Raj has since moved to another studio across town, I was lucky to run into him and his young son. It was too late to order from him, but I will be sure to get some more another trip.
Two Danger Dogs from my first set of commissions in June, 2007, were painted on a recycled signboard. The back is almost as interesting as the front.
