This year sees the launch of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s exciting new Art Ambassadors Programme through a stunning exhibition of original works at Christie’s King Street Gallery in central London. Drawing on the Foundation’s rich art heritage we have invited seven hugely talented artists to be part of the charity’s mission to raise awareness and funds to save wildlife through highly visual and emotive media. All pieces will be for sale with proceeds supporting DSWF’s conservation work to protect endangered wildlife.

Our Art Ambassadors for this first year are:
Simon Max Bannister, sculptor (b.1982 – South Africa)
Domenica de Ferranti, sculptor (b.1986 – London)
David Filer, graphite pencil artist (b.1986 – Zimbabwe/South Africa)
Emily Lamb, painter (b.1985 – Africa and Cornwall)
Mandy Shepherd, painter (b.1960 – England)
James Kydd photographer (b. 1977 – South Africa)

50% of the proceeds from the sale of each original piece will go directly to support the work of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation funding vital conservation initiatives across Africa and Asia.

Each artist is generously donating one work to the live auction at DSWF’s spectacular annual Wildlife Ball, at the Dorchester, Park Lane on Friday November 10th 2017.
