Conservation – Conversation is an exploration of what it might be to some to be a conservationist. Whilst some would argue NGO’S are the path of prosperity, others might debate as to whether zoos or even game hunting be so.

This brand new collection of works identifies 12 species painted on to vintage London zoo animal transit boxes. The selected unique animal poses ranges from sleeping, swimming, falling, mating and even trophy.

Each painting is supported by a pen and ink study of which 50% of the sales will be donated to WWF.

Five of Africa’s big mammals have been patchwork stuffed and mounted to remind the viewer that if something soon doesn’t change the only survivors will be owned by the trophy hunter.
