Wildlife Matters exhibition

News_exhibition1

This is my first solo exhibition, running at The Coningsby Gallery from 27 June – 9 July. The show comprises of new work created on the theme of animal welfare and a selection of commercial work for clients including Global Blue, GQ, Hilton Hotels, Lloyd’s of London, Microsoft, Sunday Times Style Magazine and Washington Post.

Working on my book Animal Rescue inspired me to create a new series of illustrations for a more adult audience for this exhibition, covering issues such as trophy hunting, shark fin soup and extinction. It includes a poster supporting the campaign for WildAid in their endeavour to make 2016 the first ever ‘Year of the Elephant’, in an attempt to stop the ivory trade and give elephants a real chance to recover from poaching and avoid extinction.

Also featuring is my winning design for the the UN’s World Wildlife Day poster competition organised by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES). 3rd March was World Wildlife Day, and this year’s theme is “The Future of Elephants is in Our Hands” and will be drawing attention to the plight of the Asian and African elephant.
