Warren Cary is a well-known and celebrated South African wildlife artist.
He was born 14th June 1969 in Johannesburg, South Africa and pursued a career in the printing industry. Over the years Warren dabbled in his passion for art and with a desire to be surrounded by wildlife, Warren abandoned the rat race and relocated to Hoedspruit in 2011, to become a full-time wildlife artist.
Warren specialises in drawing the amazing nature and wildlife of the Greater Kruger National Park that he is so passionate about. This passion is reflected in his award-winning work which has been described as having an individual style of precision, power and eloquence!
As a self-taught artist the detail of the work that he produces is exceptional. Seeing the detail in every single piece of art is breath-taking. Every hair, every feather is perfect, making his work so accurate that it looks almost lifelike.
Although Warren is experienced in all mediums, his medium of choice is graphite pencil and pastels, and he also happens to be the brand ambassador for Faber-Castell in South Africa.
Warren is a person who believes in “giving back” and is willing to share his knowledge and experiences freely, which is evidenced in the mentorship he gives to emerging artists.
Despite having won worldwide acclaim for his artwork he is not content to rest on his laurels and amongst other pursuits opened the spectacular Warren Cary Wildlife Gallery in Hoedspruit where he showcases some of South Africa’s renown wildlife artists and has created a platform for up-and-coming wildlife artists.
When Warren is not at his drawing board, keeping up with his numerous commissioned artworks, you will find him beating around the bush photographing, analysing and studying his next subject!
