Little Rabbit, 2022 is a digital painting created by visual artist Kay Nyx which is now available to purchase from the Saatchi Art website as a Limited Edition print.
What inspired me to create the artwork?
Little Rabbit is a digital painting of a young person stuck in a bleak world. The shadows seem everywhere, and there is little to look forward to. Even though the person themselves is traumatised, they do not want to pass that trauma onto the future generation. That is why the young person carries a torch of hope. They are trying to light up the world and erase all the shadows. They want a better future - a safer future for everyone.
What do I hope the viewer will feel?
When looking at the digital painting, I hope the viewer feels the contrast of "light" and "shadow", not only in the tonal range but in the face of the child versus the light they hold.
Why did I choose this medium?
Digitally painting allows you to completely control the colour output, as well as the reproductive quality. For that reason, I used it for this painting as I wanted to have complete control over the tonal range. It needed to have a clear shift from dark to light.

Framing and Installation of the artwork
This artwork does not come with hanging/installation hardware. I decided to keep this artwork unframed with unfinished edges to give the buyer greater display flexibility. Whilst you are organising your professional framer, I would recommend keeping the print somewhere dry and following my care tips whilst storing the artwork:
Avoid applying pressure or weight to the print.
Avoid any surfaces that could rub against the surface of the print.
Limit the number of times you touch the print's surface with ungloved hands.
I recommend speaking to a professional framer for the best solution for hanging/installing the artwork in your chosen location.
