TITLE: Ring Tailed Lemur
MEDIUM: Watercolour and Pencil
ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Born in Central London in 1990, Jack Haslam trained in printmaking at City Lit. Jack’s love of animals is a major influence in Jack’s life and a driving force for his work: “What others might consider minor and unimportant details are the things that inspire me. I am fascinated by the minutiae of different animals: the gorilla’s cheeks and the anteater’s claws. My cognitive problems mean that I have difficulty relating to humans. I find them unfathomable at times. Animals help me manage my feelings of isolation and allow me to build bridges with people.” The seeds of Jack’s future career were sown at the Mall Galleries in London, where in 2013 he was first nominated for Wildlife Artist of the Year with many more nominations following. His striking image of animals taking sanctuary in a ‘flaming ark’ raised awareness of the urgent need to protect wildlife.
