Paul Bosman Wildlife Artist

Wildlife artist Paul Bosman was born in South Africa on August 2, 1929 and spent his early years in the Great Karoo, a semi-arid area that bears a striking resemblance to the Sonoran desert of Arizona. His parents moved from the Karoo to Botswana and in this great wilderness he became familiar with the big game species. This was followed in 1969 by building, owning and operating a luxury photographic safari lodge in Zimbabwe where he began to paint the prolific bird and animal life. In 1982 he and his family emigrated to the United States and have become U.S. citizens.

"I see art and wildlife conservation as a symbiotic relationship. Because art keeps alive the memories of wildlife in a natural setting, it stimulates a longing in the public to know that such scenes will continue to exist in nature."

"I think inspiration for my work comes from having spent my childhood in the wilderness area of Botswana, surrounded by Nature. As an adult I was fortunate enough to own a safari lodge in what was then Rhodesia, again surrounded by Nature but this time in the midst of one of the most historical areas - Gona-re-Zhou - The Place of the Elephants."
