TITLE: Penguin

MEDIUM: Coloured Pencil

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Martin Aveling has been a finalist in DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year competitions for the past 15 years, and in 2021 he was awarded the inaugural David Shepherd Art of Survival award. Martin coined the phrase ‘wildlife artivism’ in an effort to encourage stronger calls to action in the creative output of working wildlife artists. He is a partner artist at DSWF and sits on the judging panel for the WAY youth category. Last year Martin helped DSWF broker a partnership with Derwent Pencils, for whom he is a global ambassador, and Martin’s artwork features on Derwent’s pastel pencil tins, his favourite medium for over 25 years.

#SKETCHFORWILDLIFE: Each year, the talented artists who take part in DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year are invited to participate in #SketchForWildlife. These small postcard sized original artworks give everyone a chance to own a totally unique piece of work, by a highly sought-after collection of artists.

The postcards have always been extremely popular and we hope you will support this initiative. The subject and medium of the postcard has been left entirely up to the artist, just being their own celebration of the natural world.

DELIVERY INFORMATION: This piece will be posted to buyers after conclusion of the exhibition on 16 September 2023. UK delivery costs are included in the price. International postage may incur additional costs that will be confirmed after purchase.

CONSERVATION CONTRIBUTION: 100% of the proceeds from this sale will support the charitable work of David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) and our ground-based conservation partners across Africa and Asia.
