Born: 1969  South Africa

David Bucklow Biography

South African Artist David Bucklow has always loved drawing and painting wildlife. He loves African wildlife and the Big Five animals. Even at the age of 5 when he did a crayon sketch artwork of a lion. After completing school at Amanzimtoti High School, he spent the next two years completing his national service in Mpumalanga.

With his natural affinity for animals, David spent his two years service as a  dog trainer. It was here that he started spending his free time sketching animals indigenous to the area. Later, David ventured into the art of portraiture. Despite this South African artist’s talent with portrait art, David started to feel that he should once again devote his time and talents to wildlife paintings. Working as a manager at a tanner left David with little time to  develop his skills as an artist, however; his early works found favour with Fine Art Portfolio and started his career as an artist. 

David Bucklow is now one of South Africa's most renowned and collected wildlife artists.
