Horn of the Hunter by Peter Stewart - 20x24 " oil on canvas

About the Artist: Peter Stewart is a young contemporary painter who has developed a reputation for his highly representational wildlife art. Growing up in South Africa, he became interested in wildlife and the African bush from an early age. Peter has always had a passion for wildlife and the African bush and has spent many months traveling and experiencing the continent. His training has introduced him to many artistic influences including Kim Donaldson (personal friend and mentor), Paul Bosman, Dino Paravano, Shirley Greene and David Shepherd. He has a deep respect for the knowledge and sensitivities of the past and has spent time visiting museums as well as establishing relationships with contemporary realist painters in the USA. Peter has been able to sift through the vast amount of information, be selective, and utilize what's necessary to achieve an impact that speaks about a personal experience with his subjects. His paintings emote, and convey a care and sensitivity that is only achieved from knowing the subject matter intimately. Utilizing subtle value and temperature shifts, fine draughtsmanship, and pure intuition, Peter weaves a world of breathable air and tactile forms.

Zambezi - Our Kingdom by Brita Harland - 36x20x2" oil on canvas

This beautiful diptych painting depicts a magical Zambezi valley scene, of three big elephant bulls, standing in the late afternoon light in a mopane forest.

Living and working on safaris with her husband Richard – the legendary hunter and author - in the great Zambezi Valley and Gonarezhou, has provided Brita Harland with a wealth of first hand observation of the bushvelt and big game. Significantly she grew to love the harsh dry environment of these wilderness areas where the long, hot days and dry mopane forests created the special magic of Africa.

Brita’s style and subject matter has found widespread favour, resulting in a number of exhibitions and many commissions. Much of her art has found its way to private collections, not only in Africa, but also Europe & the USA.

The Front Line by Peter Stewart - 36x48" oil on canvas  

Depicting a classic Zambezi valley scene, a breeding herd of elephants in defensive mode. The older more experienced cows taking point position creating a front line that is not to be breached. A highly unpredictable situation, only for the brave at heart! With the increase in poaching levels in Zimbabwe these animals are coming under extreme pressure and an increase in aggressive behaviour in these herds is becoming a common occurrence. On the frontline too, are the anti-poaching units such as DAPU and their dedicated personnel who fight this ongoing battle with poachers.
