In an artistic style that is most definitely photo-realistic and shows tremendous talent and technique in the detailed treatment of his artworks, David’s content repertoire includes many of South Africa’s iconic landscape and seascape scenes, as well as African portraits.
However, David’s heart belongs to his magnificent and beloved wildlife paintings. Filled with colourful detail and character, each of his wildlife artworks is brought to life by the attention to detail of the animal's mesmerising eyes.
David proudly notes: “When you get the eyes just right, the artwork comes to life and it is almost as if you can feel the animal’s stare as you walk as if he/she is watching your every move - as they do in the wild. It’s quite special and takes me back to the wild bush every time.”
David Bucklow is a fine artist living in Cape Town, South Africa. He was born in 1969 and has been practising art for many years, ultimately making it his profession, and producing work for the last 30 years. David’s paintings explore a wide range of wildlife and local landscapes.
He works with a selection of acrylics on canvas to capture highly detailed imagery – almost as though experiencing his subjects and scenes from life and through that precise perspective. His interest in wildlife and the environment was established as a young artist and developed swiftly as he observed the African biosphere. He progressed quickly as he discovered the endless wonders of nature within this beautiful continent.
David’s work has become widely admired and collected nationally and internationally. Some of his most recognisable pieces feature magnificent portraits of wild animals within contrasted and evocative landscapes. Viewers are drawn into his large-scale paintings through direct eye-contact with the animal, an intimate moment for the viewer to contemplate their existence within nature.
