A Brief History Of Wildlife Art

Wildlife art dates back to prehistoric times, evidence of which is found in the form of paintings of animals and birds on the walls and roofs of caves. Although the exact period of it is not known, archaeologists believe that world’s oldest animal drawing dates back 40,000 years ago. Before the advent of Bronze Age, wilderness was as much a part of humans as wild creatures, and depictions of it is found in many older cavern drawings.

After the civilization breakthrough, we see a lot of animal artists tried to capture the fauna in various phases of their lives, and it has always thrilled us to see whether it’s the fierceness in eyes of the untamed or the beautiful fowl with its nestlings. This old art form has seen its journey from the engravings on caves, copper plates, and wooden blocks to modern age sketches and colours on canvas, and photography. There are many renowned wildlife artists like Carl Rungius to David Shepherd and many others who have tried to keep this beautiful art alive in their paintings and portraits.

The Curious Case Of Homo Sapiens And Wildlife

Wilderness has always fascinated us to explore more and understand the ecosystem. We all remember the famous “Mowgli” and his exhilarating journey among the fantastic beasts of the wild. Irrespective of the age group, we all are equally thrilled when in a zoo, looking at those amazing creations, many of which are also on the verge of extinction.

At one hand where we cannot get enough of their lives and are constantly motivated to explore and research and seize every moment from the lens of our eyes into our memories or canvas of art while on the other hand we are the same group, who, provoked by our self-serving motives, are destroying the ecosystem. This behaviour has led to the extinction of many bewildering and enchanting fauna and feathered friends.

Preserving The Wildlife With Art

With the present condition of our wildlife, it has become important to understand and conserve the nature with its habitats. This is the very reason why awareness among the common mass is vital to recognize the significance of many critically endangered species that are on the verge of extinction and if not acted early, will probably be alive in just paintings.

There are many international Organizations and artists, who are dedicated towards wildlife conservation by upholding art exhibitions, galleries, museums, and auctions to spread awareness. Peep through the eyes of the artist in the beautiful and peaceful place of this award winning painting which says a lot about how fascinating it is to see these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. It gives us a wake-up call to realize how it is plummeting day by day, and its high time we make our contribution as individuals.

The Interrelation Of Art And Life

To all those art lovers and animal enthusiasts, one need to keep alive the symphony between life and artwork as each is inspired by the other. However, the enchantment is not just because of those brushstrokes and vivid colour impressions, or the thought provoking and life-like image in itself. It is because these are the visions of the creator, who witnessed the masterpiece in reality before sketching it down for the world to experience a similar sentiment he had during his encounter. The charm exists because the painting is more than a mere abstract; it is a story of the wilderness!
