BAS

BAS is one of the worlds most highly acclaimed wildlife and nature artists. The Art of BAS receives worldwide recognition from museums, Royalty, Governments, galleries, critics and collectors of fine art.

An innate sense of design and composition, emphasising light and colour, is utilised to create a fine art original BAS oil painting. Inspiration is gained through extensive adventures in wilderness areas around the globe, the artist then captures the wonder and beauty of creation on canvas. BAS’ paintings are included in three books entitled “Best of Wildlife Art”, published in the USA.

The Art of BAS has been privileged to benefit Charitable Foundations and BAS hopes that his fine art can be used to further promote environmental concerns. It is the artists’ pleasure to share his unique vision with others through The Art of BAS.

His style of contemporary realism combines the truth of nature with his own personal vision as it accentuates colour, light and abstract form. BAS strives to be an originator rather than an imitator – to say something new to the observer – Wildlife Art Magazine, USA.
