Born in New Zealand to Samoan parents, Gus Hunter has been drawing for many years, working as a freelance illustrator before joining the Visual Effects team on the hugely successful 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy in April 2000. In 2002, Gus was asked to be one of only two conceptual designers on Peter Jackson's latest blockbuster 'King Kong.' Since then he has produced over 2500 different pieces of concept art, covering all the various different scenes on 'Skull Island' and beyond.
One of the iconic images of 'King Kong', this powerful artwork depicts Kong desperately fighting three powerful V-Rexs in order to protect the love of his life, Ann Darrow.
This framed print of Gus's artwork includes a metal title plaque and two spent shell casings - one .30-06 and one .45 ACP - actually fired on the set of Peter Jackson's "King Kong". One of the shell casings is from a batch that Peter Jackson had specially commissioned for the movie, with "K-K" stamped in the base.
Each print is individually hand numbered and signed by both Richard Taylor and Gus Hunter.
