"Satu Kuat" Limited Edition of 95 Sumatran Tiger Print by James Corwin
"Satu Kuat," a stunning original oil painting by wildlife artist James Corwin captures the incredible beauty and intensity of the powerful Sumatran tiger. James Corwin describes his painting, "Satu Kuat means The Powerful One in Indonesian. This is a portrait of a Sumatran Tiger. Its powerful stare begs the viewer to gaze deep into his soulful eyes. Imagine what a tiger sees every day in the jungle. Do his eyes tell you a story?"
Sumatran tigers are the smallest surviving tiger subspecies and are distinguished by heavy black stripes on their orange coats. The last of Indonesia’s tigers—as few as 400 today—are holding on for survival in the remaining patches of forests on the island of Sumatra. Accelerating deforestation and rampant poaching mean this noble creature could end up like its extinct Javan and Balinese relatives.
In Indonesia, anyone caught hunting tigers could face jail time and steep fines. But despite increased efforts in tiger conservation—including strengthening law enforcement and antipoaching capacity—a substantial market remains in Sumatra and the rest of Asia for tiger parts and products. Sumatran tigers are losing their habitat and prey fast, and poaching shows no sign of decline. (courtesy WWF)

About James Corwin
James Corwin designs distinct oil paintings through a unique balance of gestural paint techniques and precise detail. Primarily focused on wildlife he creates a finely detailed subject often emerging through obscure and atmospheric landscapes. Avoiding static portraits and general themes in wildlife art, Corwin aims to engage the viewer through his dynamic compositions that stir emotion. “Wildlife in nature is elusive and I desire to capture this reality.”
With an appreciation for both fine detail and contemporary art, Corwin exquisitely marries the two in each painting with detailed subjects and loosely constructed backgrounds often exposing the underpainting and raw canvas.
Corwin gathers inspiration and references from his frequent travels to exotic destinations around the world. A recent trip to South Africa opened his eyes to threats of poaching on wildlife. A portion of his sales support conservation projects throughout the world.
Corwin has established himself as a widely collected artist at a very young age. His artwork is collected nationally and internationally as he participates in prestigious exhibitions and auctions throughout the year. He is the youngest artist to ever participate in both Dallas Safari Club and Safari Club International in Las Vegas. Typically he paints 10-12 hours per day, 7 days a week. He also has two studios overlooking the white sandy beaches of Long Island, NY and located in Lakeside, MT overlooking Flathead Lake and the Swan Mountain Range.
By providing utmost quality and innovation in his painting, Corwin creates a sustaining legacy of integrity and loyalty in his art and conservation.
Corwin was born June 24, 1991 in Honolulu, HI. Two years later he moved to Montana where he grew up in Kalispell. He participated in a 2-year International Art Program.
