Wildlife Artist
Youth for Wildlife Contributor

Youth for Wildlife would like to thank Tony Karpinski for his contributions to our new website and for his support.  We are excited to feature his beautiful paintings for all of our followers to enjoy and look forward to seeing his future creations.  This page is dedicated in honor of his wildlife art and conservation efforts.

Tony was born in 1965 and lives in London, United Kingdom. From an early age he was capturing and recreating as art the world as he perceived it. His education in art began, and continues, by reflecting this world. As a young artist he was commissioned to create several pastiches of Dutch masters and it was here that he developed his mastery of oils.
His life changed forever when he was introduced to the wildlife paintings of Wilhelm Kuhnert (1865-1926) . They were truly inspirational. This led to the start of Tony's journeys to Africa. What followed, and continues to this day, is a unique, impressive and prestigious collection of wonderful paintings.

An affinity and love for nature is what inspires Tony to paint this valuable body of work. Tony travels to Africa to immerse himself in the landscapes and animals that become his art. There he grasps their essence and spirit and then encapsulates these through the medium of oils onto board and canvas. This love of wildlife and a never ending enthusiasm for painting drives Tony to continuously surpass his own demands of excellence. This is coupled with an instinctive need to grow his understanding and exploration of his chosen medium of expression.

This collection of paintings, whether it be African wildlife, exquisite nudes, evocative Venice pieces, and whatever else the future may hold, all have certain elements in common - a capturing of a mood and atmosphere, a glowing vibrancy and realism, and yet a freshness unequalled elsewhere in the world of art today. Tony's paintings are being enjoyed and admired in private collections worldwide. Their value has increased dramatically in recent years as they are sought by discerning collectors who love Tony's unique, incredibly skillful translation of nature at her best.
