Cross River Gorilla'



Artist Statement

Also known as a critically endangered species conservationist. I have created this High realist painting of the critically endangered 'Cross River Gorilla' (300 alive) This was created over a period of just 3 months and in a series of 9 endangered species paintings. This was the shortest time to create a painting as it was immanent to bring its attention to an international audience. Most of my work takes 1 year to create. It is widely used as a display in many conservation venues such as with fame Ian Redmond's (Dian Fossey)

How it fits into contest

This painting represents mankind's wanton destruction,at any cost,Gods creation for profit. By trusting and relying upon God you put on a suit of armor understanding that Satan the devil is the god of this system of things 2 Tim.3:1-5 including the destruction of wildlife and to discourage man from acknowledging Gods right to rule. But we have the hope knowing that this will soon come to an end Rev.11:18, John 3:8, Ec.1:4 and Rev. 21:4


African Conservation Foundation' of which I am a part of, is a non for profit organization encouraging education and fundraising toward the preservation of endangered species and one by means through my art work.WWF,Great Ape Foundation and Born Free Foundation.
