BRITISH WILDLIFE ART
British 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 British garden 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
Alan has received international acclaim as a wildlife painter, 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 painter 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 african wildlife artwork has also attracted huge interest at major auctions including Sotheby’s, Bonhams and Christie’s and continues to captivate collectors across the World.
In recent years, Alan has stepped away from the art exhibition spotlight and circuit to explore and develop his painting style with a particular emphasis on capturing texture, depth and richness. His painting experiments have yielded feathers, fur and satin of unparalleled realism.
Alan is married to the equestrian artist Judi Kent Pyrah, with whom he has a son, Guy. His step-son Zach Mendelsohn has created an online presence and co-ordinated international art exhibitions for Alan during his time in France. Alan is now back in the UK and currently lives on the Wykeham Estate near Scarborough in North Yorkshire.
During his painting career, Alan has exhibited his wildlife paintings alongside John Seery-Lester, Robert Bateman, David Shepherd, Carl Brenders, Raymond Ching, Brian Jarvi, Kim Donaldson, Andrew Ellis, Terry Isaac, Steve Winterburn and most of the Top Wildlife artists around the world.
Alan judged the Daily Mail's "Not the Turner Prize" painting competition at the Mall Galleries, and the "National Children's Art” Competition also at the Mall Galleries in London.
More recently Alan was section winner in the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010 with his painting Tiger Painting "Watchmen" in the animals in their environment section.
