ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: Commanding respect with a formidable reputation, the iconic Cape Buffalo is physically imposing, aggressive and dangerous; characteristics which both inspired and are echoed in the strong colours and bold brushstrokes of Emma Swifts’ powerful painting. Not many predators would challenge a buffalo in its prime, with those impressive horns stemming from a distinctive fused bone shield called a boss, yet here Emma portrays the symbiotic relationship it has with the red and yellow billed Oxpecker bird.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Emma Swift is an award-winning wildlife artist who works predominantly in oils. Combining vivid colours with bold brush strokes, alongside more intricate detail, Emma brings to life her passion for animals and birds. Wildlife is inextricably linked to its environment and other species and she uses colour to bring the subject and background together, reminding us how everything should be interconnected. Inspired by the natural world and the charities who strive to protect it, Emma is motivated to support vital conservation projects through the sales of her work.
