“The arts have an important role to play in changing our culture. To see wildlife as a priority is to see the bigger picture. This exhibition has heart and a great cause. I am thrilled to be bringing some South African energy to the space.” – Simon Max Bannister
The exhibition, which runs from 11th-15th November at the Old Truman Gallery in London, will feature exciting new original works that provide a modern take on traditional wildlife art.
In addition to providing a new platform for young talent, this unique collaboration blends art with philanthropy, creating rare art to help rare animals. All three artists care deeply about the subjects that grace their work and have generously agreed to donate 50% of sales to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation ( DSWF ).
Emily Lamb, from Britain, has an explosive style and paints with oil and acrylic on canvas. Her work has been shown in numerous exhibitions in the UK and abroad, with two sell-out solo exhibitions at the prestigious Rountree Tryon gallery in London.
David Filer, from Zimbabwe, works in graphite with an almost photographic attention to detail while Simon Max Bannister, from South Africa, and resident Artist at Londolozi, has an organic approach to sculpture that harnesses raw natural materials.
