About the artist:

Cy Baker recognises we live in a time where most of the world is finally waking up to the environmental crisis mankind brought into being. He considers his job as an artist is to spread the message of how valuable, beautiful, and fragile our planet is. He feels passionately he has a part to play in trying to capture and communicate some of the raw, spiritual emotion felt when interacting with nature. Cy comments that he cannot capture the way these moments touch one’s soul in words, photographs, or music – so he does so in the only way he knows, through his artwork.

‘Uganda Untamed’ is Cy’s latest show, exhibiting alongside the Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition, which includes a collection thought-provoking and visually stunning works that showcase his unique style and perspective.

All created during Cy’s recent trip to Uganda, where he visited one of DSWF’s frontline projects, Cy has produced a truly eclectic body of work depicting some of Africa’s most at risk species. 50% of the proceeds from Cy’s exhibition will be donated to DSWF, to support our vital work protecting endangered species across Africa and Asia.
