David Bucklow has always had a zest for portraying wildlife, even at the age of 5 when he did a crayon sketch 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 in this form of 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.
In a artistic style that is most definitely photo-realistic art and showing tremendous talent and technique in the detailed treatment of his mesmerising wildlife art studies, David Bucklow works in his chosen medium of acrylic and finishes each artwork with a varnish veneer for extra luster.
In 2004, David was approached to take part in the unity series of limited editions launched for the Nelson Mandela Trust, in Switzerland. Although controversy surrounded the “division of the spoils”, there is no doubt that David’s artwork was in the top five of the 87 artists commissioned worldwide.
We believe that all of his limited editions were sold out as of March 2005. Since this major breakthrough, David’s South African wildlife art has been sought after by major galleries and patrons of the art worldwide.
Following the ever-growing popularity and collectability of David's original paintings, an exclusive collection of limited edition prints have been released. Twelve of his best wildlife artworks have been hand-selected to form this limited edition print series, released in various sizes on both canvas and acid-free paper.
