For Art Lovers and Buyers

This year marked the tenth anniversary of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s Wildlife Artist of the Year, London’s leading wildlife art event. Returning to the Mall Galleries in London SW1 this summer, the event brought together an excitingly broad range of styles and mediums from international and UK artists. From sculpture to watercolours, from oils to charcoal this fabulous exhibition of original wildlife art is designed not only to excite the senses, celebrate the beauty and diversity of the natural world, but also to support the artists and the wildlife that inspires them. Fifty percent of all sales support wildlife protection and since its inception the event has raised over £340,000 to help fund vital park protection, education, outreach and undercover investigation work supported by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.

This year’s gallery event is now closed but you can still browse and buy from the 2017 shortlist by clicking here
