How does one take home an African sunset? Or the stare of a leopard? Or the awe that is felt when overwhelmed by the grandness of a lion encounter in the African bush? The answer is Art!
Wildlife art is largely based on the artists personal experiences in the field and portrays an interest in the character and essence of the subject matter, how it belongs in its share of the habitat, the impression it creates, the pattern of a group, aspects of its behaviour, or simply the artist’s sheer enjoyment of the encounter.
The artists spend vast amounts of their time in the bush researching, studying and creating their art, and we at the Warren Cary Wildlife Gallery, act as the link between the artist and the customer, who forms a connection to an artwork and its artist, who all have a desire to express what they feel and to create something of great value!
ABOUT THE GALLERY
As an artist with his muse being the seduction of the African Bush, Hoedspruit called to Warren Cary as the place to immerse himself in, to be free to observe and experience the African bush, and to express his passion in creating his Wildlife Art Master Pieces. In 2011 Warren left the rat-race of Johannesburg and set up life in “The Hoed” as a full time Wildlife Artist.
With a lack of Wildlife Galleries worldwide, Warren felt it was imperative that South Africa needed a space to showcase quality Wildlife Art. Hoedspruit, being the gateway to some the best wildlife parks and game reserves in South Africa, was the perfect location for a Prestigious Wildlife Art Gallery, and in 2017, Warren, along with 3 other founding artists (Including the extremely talented artist, Kim Kay) opened the doors to the Warren Cary Wildlife Gallery.
The gallery has grown from strength to strength, building a reputation of showcasing Quality Wildlife Artworks in a space that is elegant, refined and non-intimidating.
The gallery has attracted a number of extremely talented South African Artists across a range of mediums and showcasing various wildlife art viewpoints across all mediums.
The Gallery covers two floors with over 200 pieces of artworks, sculptures, prints and fine art photographic prints. The space also includes the African Detail boutique, Quality dry media art supplies and an Art classes area. We also have the Yum factory which offers coffees, hand crafted ice reams, and a food truck that serves woodfired pizzas.
The gallery is available for functions.
