Eric Wilson is one of Great Britain’s leading wildlife artists. During the last 20 years, he has painted endangered animals in their natural habitats all over the globe using a variety of mediums, from oil paints to pastels.
Eric is also passionate about conservation and is involved in work to save the tigers of India. He has donated several of his photo-realistic masterpieces to raise awareness about their plight and collect funds for wildlife conservation efforts. “If you paint wildlife for a living, the least you can do is give something back in return – in my lifetime 95 per cent of lions in Africa have been wiped out – mostly by humans and it is a tragedy,” the artist says.
