Wildlife art to intrigue and inspire
Specializing in oil paintings of wildlife from Africa and India, Tony Forrest is a wildlife artist with a deep passion for animals and the natural world.
“I have had a deep passion for wildlife for as long as I can remember. Reading books about wildlife and art when I was at primary school. Now the two have come together and as an artist there is real excitement when I come home from Africa and look at my new material.”

Wildlife Art with emotion
A PASSION FOR WILDLIFE ART, AFRICA AND ITS WILDLIFE
I have been travelling to Africa and painting wildlife for many years and it never ceases to grab my heart as soon as I arrive and step into the bush. There is a certain light that I have never seen anywhere else. Africa is a very special place and the many wildlife reserves are the last sanctuary for many of the animals that I paint. I feel privileged to have seen so many wonderful places and it is amazing to sit painting at my
easel thinking that the leopard I am painting today is the very same animal that I spent quality time with in the African bush just a few days earlier. This is what being a wildlife artist is all about - thoroughly engaging with my subject. I hope that it continues for many more years to come and that the animals I paint today will still be there for others to see tomorrow.
My speciality is traditional oil paintings on canvas of the natural world; in particular that of Africa and India.
The wildlife here is a true reminder of how wonderful and also how fragile and precious our world is. We owe it to our children to look after it and nurture it - we do not own it, but are merely custodians for future generations. I hope that my work will serve as a reminder that this world of wildlife is in danger of being lost unless we all take positive steps to conserve it.
