The Rattus Sophisticatus:

Where Artistry Meets Compassion

Introducing my whimsical canvas artwork, "The Rattus Sophisticatus", an image so delightfully absurd that it will have you grinning from ear to ear every time you glance its way.

Our protagonist is no ordinary rat, but an upright, anthropomorphic creature of distinction. Dressed in charmingly rustic wool clothing, this rat has a sartorial elegance that would give any human a run for their money. In one hand, he holds a quaint wicker basket, likely filled with cheese of the finest quality, while in the other, he carries a wicker bag heavy with goods – perhaps a wheel of brie or a chunk of cheddar.

The rat strides confidently down a cobbled stone street, his tall figure casting long, dramatic shadows on the surrounding medieval architecture. The buildings, so perfectly preserved, seem to have sprung directly from a history book. Yet, despite the urban surroundings, our hero is the only soul in sight, suggesting he may have preferred to carry out his cheese heist under the cover of solitude.

The textures of the canvas are rendered with meticulous detail, from the rough cobblestones underfoot to the intricate weave of the rat's wicker accessories. Every line and color choice adds to the overall narrative, creating a scene that's as thought-provoking as it is humorous.

"The Rattus Sophisticatus" is more than just a canvas; it's a celebration of the absurd, a nod to the playful side of art. It's a testament to the fact that humor can be found in the most unlikely places - even in a rat's quest for fine cheese in a medieval town. This artwork promises to be a conversation starter, a mood lifter, and a delightful addition to any room.


After all, who wouldn't want a cheese-loving rat dressed in wool clothing to brighten their day?


The finer details

The Canvas - Crafted with an eye for elegance and commitment to British manufacturing, our artworks are set within real wood frames, each meticulously constructed from high-quality solid wood and glazed with 2mm glass and an MDF backing board, complete with hanging fixings. The artwork itself is printed on a 290gsm canvas, a luxurious blend of 90% bamboo fibers and 10% cotton. This unique blend evokes a natural white hue, bereft of optical brighteners, and boasts a soft, subtly textured felt structure.

Sizing - Our canvases have a bit of a Goldilocks complex. They come in three delightful sizes to ensure you find the one that's 'just right'. Our charming A4 canvas measures a neat 297 x 210mm, perfect for those cozy nooks. The A3 canvas, a bit larger at 420 x 297mm, loves to be the centerpiece of a room. And for those with a flair for the dramatic, our A2 canvas stretches out to a grand 594 x 420mm, ready to command any wall with its presence. So, choose the size that sings to your heart and let the magic unfold!

Delivery time – Each canvas is my heartfelt sonnet to you, individually crafted with all the love and dedication of a besotted artist. But as with all great romances, there's a dash of suspense. After your order is placed, they'll take a brisk 5-9 working days to twirl, leap, and pirouette their way right onto your doorstep.


International Delivery? – Now, I've got a soft spot for our international chums, but my canvases? They're homebodies, through and through. They've let their passports gather dust and have developed a sort of travel anxiety. So, these are currently only deliverable within the UK. 


Returns – Parting ways with a piece? No problem, it's as easy as a walk in the park on a sunny day! Just give me a shout via email, and we'll sort out the rest. Just a friendly reminder though, our returns window lasts for a smidgen over a lunar cycle - that's 31 days, for those who like to keep track - from the day you place your order. And of course, your returned piece should be as pristine as a dew-kissed morning bloom.
