Londolozi’s artist in resident, Simon Max Bannister, has recently returned from a phenomenal journey and we are so excited to share with you what he has been up to for the last few months.
The Wild Uncovered was an exhibition showcasing the raw and exciting talent of three upcoming artists. Simon Max Bannister and David Filer are both past winners of Wildlife Artist of the Year and have exhibited across Southern Africa. The Wild Uncovered was their first major show in the UK. Emily Lamb’s work has been shown in numerous exhibitions in the UK and abroad and she has also had two sell out solo exhibitions at the prestigious RountreeTryon gallery in London. Due to their passion and commitment to the subjects that grace their work all three artists are generously donating a percentage of sales to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation is a small, effective charity funding key projects in Africa and Asia working to save critically endangered mammals in the wild.
Below you can see some of Simon’s work that was presented at the exhibit:
Simon, your Londolozi family are so proud of what you have achieved and we look forward to new adventures with you.

All of them are magnificent. But the rhino has a special place in my heart. Simon, it was a pleasure to meet you when I was in Londolozi last September. Hope to meet up with you again some day.
Wow, Simon! Sensational stuff, love the eagle, but my favourite is the wild dog , so much attitude! Well done!
Congrats Simon – Love “Mistaken Outlaw”.
I love the kudus! I can only imagine what it must be like to be ul close to them in the gallery! Wonderful work, Simon.
