ALAN M HUNT INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED UK WILDLIFE ARTIST
Alan Hunt began painting at the age of eight, when his mother gave him a box of paints to occupy him as he recuperated from an illness. He started off painting birds, which had fascinated him from an early age, but soon moved on to capture the natural world around him on canvas.
First studying art at Middlesbrough Art College, Alan then decided to study zoology at Leeds College and Bristol University. His first solo exhibition was held in his home town of Redcar North East of England at the age of 18 and since then his original paintings have been shown in museums, galleries and public and private collections worldwide. Alan has received international acclaim, winning The Society of Animal Artists’ USA Award of Excellence on four occasions and The Wildlife Art Society’s UK Best Artist on Show for three consecutive years. Alan has been the lead artist at five exhibitions in the US and in 1998 was the first non-American to be voted on to the American Wildlife Art Hall Of Fame. In 1999, he was chosen as Artist of the Year for the Florida Wildlife Art Expo. Alan’s work has also attracted huge interest at major auctions including Sotheby’s, Bonham’s and Christie’s and continues to captivate collectors across the World.
Alan still teaches field painting and leads study trips around the world. Recent trips in pursuit of his wildlife reference have taken him to the Masai Mara in Kenya to study the wildebeest migration which Alan says was his best ever trip to Africa, and a trip to Qatar to study the Arabian horse. Commenting on his painting, Alan says, 'As a wildlife artist and conservationist, I have grave concerns for the environment and believe it needs as much support as I can possibly give, whether financially or as a spokesman. If my son doesn't get to see half the wildlife in his lifetime that I've seen, I will feel very guilty. Rather than become a famous painter / artist I would like to be remembered as someone who tried to make people aware of the need to protect the environment, wildlife and the planet.'
